We have decided to go for indefinite strike showing solidarity to 3,000 auto drivers whose vehicles were forcibly impounded by Gurgaon traffic police in last three days... After the new Commissioner of Police Sandeep Khairwal took charge, we have been framed wrongly in traffic violation cases. We are not being allowed to get back our vehicles even after paying the fine. After failing to get any help, we have decided to go an indefinite strike.
