Shimla, September 25:Taking the truck unions head on, the Federation of Himachal Industries (FHI) has decided to go on strike if the transporters fail to lift the seize to the two cement plants of ACC and Gujarat Ambuja in the state.
Mr M.P. Mittal, chairman of the federation, said that truck unions could not be allowed to hold the industry to ransom.
A delegation of the industrialists led by Mr Mittal met the Chief Minister here today and urged him to intervene in the matter. The Chief Minister assured that transport services would be resumed shortly.
The threat of lay-off was looming on both the cement plants with continued stoppage of work by transporters of Barmana and Darlaghat which would seriously affect the economy of the state and more significantly, the industrial image of Himachal Pradesh, he said.
