Auto rickshaws strike continues

Auto unions and Government stick to their stand

Hyderabad, October 30, 2007

The general public, especially school going children and employees had a hard time on Tuesday as the 1.5 Lakh auto rickhaws in the twin cities are off the roads following the decision of auto driver unions to stay on strike. The State Government has directed that all auto rickshaws install digital meters by December 1, 2007. In protest against the Government's decision, the auto drivers launched an indefinite strike from the midnight of Monday protesting the directive and drive against tampered mechanical meters.

Meanwhile, special arrangements were made by the Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) and the South Central Railways (SCR) have fell short of expectations of the public. Most of the bus stands were milling with people and all the city buses were overcrowded. The Minister for Transport, K Lakshmiknarayana said that the strike was meaningless and that the Government has given sufficient time to install digital meters.

The Minister said in the recent drive by Transport Department, 1296 auto rickshaws were seized for using tampered meters. The courts have also supported for digital meters in auto rickshaws, he pointed out. Lok Satta party suggested that the Government should give interest free loans to auto drivers to switch over to digital meters so that the drivers community can get the necessary funding. Meanwhile, the Leader of AP Auto Drivers and Workers Federation B Venkatesham claimed that the strike was a total success.
