According to the report, the drivers were not paid their salaries and called a strike in order to force the government to pay them their legal wages. They launched a protest at the secretariat station due to their complaint that they have not been paid the amount that they were promised earlier on. The buses have been shut off and passengers have been left standing on the tracks.
