Srinagar: The e-rickshaw drivers, who are operating in Srinagar areas, are being allegedly stopped from operating on several routes by the traffic police.

The drivers staged a protest under the banner of All Kashmir E-Rickshaw Association and alleged that they are being pushed to the wall by creating hurdles in their way.

Arshid Abbas, President of the associationsaid that the traffic policemen didn’t allow them to operate in Karan Nagar area, which has been already mentioned in the permissible route plan by the RTO Office.

“We don’t understand the reasons for which we are being stopped from operating in the designated route plan. We have staged a protest today to press for our demands. In case we are not allowed to operate then the loans we have availed from the banks should be paid by the government itself,” Abbas said.

Furthermore, he added that they have called for a two-day strike to protest against the move and are also going to meet the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha tomorrow to seek his intervention in this regard.

Superintendent of Police Traffic, Muzaffar Shah said that the e-rickshaw drivers will not be stopped from operating on the designated route plan. (KNO)
