Haryana Roadways employees today went on a day-long strike in protest against the state government's decision to introduce 700 private buses in the state.
They said they would not allow the state government to launch 700 private buses in the state as it would lead to privatisation of the transport department.
They said the government should instead increase the number of buses under the roadways department.
Police personnel were deployed at several bus stands in Haryana to prevent any untoward incident in the wake of the day-long strike.
