E-rickshaw drivers’ meet with traffic DIG deferred again

Friday, 14 February 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

After the slated meeting of e-rickshaw drivers with the deputy inspector general of traffic was deferred once again on Thursday, the district president of Devbhoomi E-rickshaw Welfare Society, Ravindra Tyagi reportedly suffered a heart attack and was admitted to Government Doon Medical College (GDMC) hospital.

According to secretary of Devbhumi E-Rickshaw Owner and Driver Welfare Society, Santosh Kumar, “The department once again duped us on Thursday by saying that one of the important officers who should be in the meeting was not present.

They have no sympathy for the poor e-rickshaw drivers who are on the verge of dying from starvation. After the meeting was deferred yet again, our district president suffered a heart attack but still nothing has been said or done by the department.”

It is pertinent to mention here that after the meeting with the Traffic DIG was repeatedly deferred, the protesting e-rickshaw drivers burned an effigy of the chief minister and one of the drivers also tried to commit self immolation, pouring inflammable liquid on himself on Tuesday. However, he was prevented by other e-rickshaw drivers from setting fire to himself.

The protesting drivers claim that they are being neglected by the department as well as the government because the authorities get more money from auto rickshaws and other three-wheeler vehicles than from the e-rickshaws.
