Bandh on April 30 if issues aren’t resolved: Telangana auto drivers warn state govt

Telangana Auto Drivers’ JAC convenor Mohammed Amanullah Khan demanded on Thursday that the state government resolve auto drivers’ problems and difficulties, including an increase in auto fares before the inauguration of the new secretariat building fixed on April 30.

“Otherwise, the auto drivers in the Twin Cities would observe a one-day ‘Auto Bandh’ on the day and plan to gherao the building and prevent its inauguration,” they said.

Amanullah Khan announced that auto drivers in the twin cities would gherao the state secretariat’s new building on April 30 at 5 am and will block all side roads and ultimately prevent the inauguration of the building.

He urged chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to first “set his own house in order” before entering national politics. He wondered how the chief minister would go ahead and inaugurate the new secretariat building, which was built with the money of poor people by economically ‘crushing’ them, without resolving the auto drivers’ pending demands.

The pending demands of auto drivers include an increase in Auto meter charges on par with the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and every auto should be provided Rs 10,000 towards payment of annual insurance certificate charges and other expenses, a ban on bikes and Taxis like in Delhi, ban on registration of new electric autos and instead conversion of all existing autos into electric autos plying in GHMC area with the govt.

“The subsidy, new auto permits should be issued without restriction just like the new permits are issued to Ola, Uber and other cabs without restriction as this would stop black marketing of new autos business going on in twin cities non-stop automatically. Issue necessary guidelines to stop the private auto financiers ever-rising harassment and stoppage of corruption and harassment going on in the transport and police departments,” the JAC demanded.
