As the Chandigarh Administration banned the entry of autorickshaws registered outside UT,the common man became the unsuspecting victim of the chaos that followed. Officials of the State Transport Authority (STA) impounded vehicles,autorickshaw unions went on strike and no respite seems in sight. Newsline asks residents where the inconvenience will lead…

Rakesh Tiwari,Mahindra & Mahindra
No strike is right. Only the public suffers. No Administration is going to suffer because the common man has to bear the brunt. The Administration should think twice before taking any decision that would affect the masses. I had no clue about the strike as I was in the city from Delhi on an official trip. Now I am waiting for a colleague to pick me up from the railway station.

Sandeep Sandhu,Banker
The auto drivers are right on their part. The step of the Chandigarh Administration to save the environment could be implemented in a more methodical manner. With so much of luggage,an old mother-in-law and a toddler,I do not understand how to reach Mohali from ISBT-17. It is commoners like us who suffer due to the strike.

Taruna Narang,housewife
Stepping down from the bus,we realised that we had planned a visit to Chandigarh from Gurgaon at a wrong time. With seven family members and two small children,we have no other option but to pay the taxi-drivers the exorbitant fare or return home from the bus stand only. The strike is a loss to the common man,including the auto drivers. Even they have their own families and they did not call the strike willingly but were forced to take the step.

The government should wake up to the increasing trend of calling strikes by various associations and organisations. This measure of expressing resentment does not serve good to anybody. Due to the vested interests of a few,it is the general public who is at the receiving end.

Kanika Chauhan,student
The Administration will eventually take a decision. Then why not nip the strike in the bud and not allow such a situation to arise. Why different communities need to be heard by resorting to strikes? There should be no strike at all. A good cause like saving the environment should be implemented in a more peaceful manner. 

Bimla Sharma,housewife
Everybody should get his right. Nobody should be allowed to live at the expense of others. The autorickshaw owners have a point which needs to be heard. We had to face a tough time while going from Sector 10 in Panchkula to Manimajra,that too on a hand-pulled rickshaw.
