Each Belgaumite was happy within himself saying from now on he too will be saved from the LOOT of the Auto drivers. But nothing.
AAB did a reality check and things are no different as they were for so many years.
A person wanted to go from Khade bazar to Bogarves(distance is less than 1.2 kms) the auto driver said Rs.40 when asked why not meter he said, “no meter he said you do your work I am doing my work go and talk to dc… We are going to charge you like this.”
Another commuter wanted to go to Ramdev Hotel from Samadevi Galli and the auto driver 70, when asked why 70 he said “60 last Ane ka to aao”.
The District administration did impose fines on August 1 and what after that is this some kind of rule on paper like the rule of Helmets. Do you all know that wearing of helmets is compulsory while driving two wheelers in Belgaum.
The problem is implementation.
Sorry to say but the drama is over and we are back to where we left DIS-HEARTENED.
Commuters must try and complain to the nearest police station or constable.
