Truck drivers continue protest, causing fuel shortage in south of republic

Cargo carriers continue their strike. The head of the professional association Cholponbek Zhanbaev informed 24.kg news agency.

According to him, the fuel deficit in the south has already begun, although the Minister of Transport and Roads stated the opposite, saying that train with the fuel and lubricants departed for the south region through the territory of Uzbekistan.

«We pass tank trucks. We will not stop the strike until our demands are heard. Corruption and bribes must be stopped,» Cholponbek Zhanbaev said. He noted that increase of the load on the axle is out of question.

Recall, minibuses did not work in Bishkek on Monday. The situation began to change the day before. Today, all minibuses are serving their routes.

Drivers of Talas region and Kara-Balta town also held a protest.
