He demanded the state government to exempt their tax for six months and to appeal the Minister of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Ram Vilas Paswan to immediately look in the matter. Giving a dateline till 01st April, Ranjit said all the trucks will be deposited to FCI and Transport department if the state government fails to meet their demand.
