The Auto Rickshaw Joint Action Committee (JAC) held a protest against Chandigarh Administration on Monday to press for their demands, at Exhibition Ground in Sector 34.
As many as 200 auto rickshaw drivers joined the protest. Chairman of the JAC, Kamla Kant sent a memorandum of demands to the Advisor, Home Secretary, DIG, Crime, Deputy Commissioner and Traffic SSP. Their demands included cancellation of challans, issuing of tricity permits such that the auto drivers from Panchkula and Mohali are allowed in the city as well, increase in the permitted number of commuters in LPG auto from three to four.
One of the drivers, Israel Khan said, “I drive my auto in Mohali but there are days when patients have to reach PGI in an emergency and we have to bring them, but the police at the light points charge us Rs 200-300 to let us off. Sometimes our vehicle is impounded and we have to go to courts to them released by paying Rs 5,000, which we cannot afford.”
