Diesel Auto Rickshaws over 15 years to be banned
GUWAHATI: The government is going to start a drive where Diesel auto rickshaws older than 15 years will be banned from plying. These auto rickshaws owing to their poor maintenance will be removed from the streets.
The ban will start from tomorrow, 22nd May, 2018.
Unhappy with this decision the Jatiyotabadi Yuva Chatra Parishad and Guwahati Motor Vehicle Workers Association created a ruckus at the District Transport Office (Kamrup) today. The organizations protested in front of the DTO office. The protesters gheraoed the District Transport Officer Rafiqul Mannan and demanded a withdrawal of the decision and alternative means of livelihood. They only let him go after he gave an assurance. Office work was stalled for several hours and work was hampered.
