Arvind Kejriwal will address e-rickshaw drivers at Jantar Mantar on Oct. 8

By on October 6, 2014

Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal will address e-rickshaw drivers at Jantar Mantar on Oct. 8 to seek simplification of the Centre’s draft notification regarding the plying of such vehicles in Delhi.

The party further demands the removal of the “exorbitant fees” for the registration of e-rickshaws.

“Though the notification will allow the e-rickshaws to ply legally on Delhi roads, it is still incomplete and does not fully address the concerns of e-rickshaw drivers,” the Aam Aadmi Party said.

“It is surprising that Gadkari made very tall promises at Ramlila Ground on June 17 and promised the moon to e-rickshaw drivers, but miserably failed to implement any of his promises for more than three months,” AAP added.

“The transport ministry has now brought the e-rickshaws under the Motor Vehicles Act, despite Gadkari having publicly stated that those with motors up to 600 watts will be exempted from the MV Act. Was he ill-informed or was the announcement made to mislead the poor drivers,” the statement said.
