Private & public sector drivers strike together

Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India:
A hundred private bus drivers joined the strike of temporary and contractual workers on Saturday - members of the Ahmedabad Municipal Transport Service (AMTS). 
Local authorities reacted by invoking emergency leglislation, and bringing in drivers from other regions. The strike should escalate today with a 24-hour strike called by autorickshaw drivers.
