The police after Deputy Commissioner’s deadline of implementation of Auto meters, on Saturday the police woke up early morning and started to fine autos who violated the law.
About 222 autos were fined and 16 seized yesterday.
Our beloved Member of Parliament Mr.Suresh Angadi who had been to the head post office, speaking to the media said
The district administration and the police department are levying fines on Auto drivers which is not correct. Before implementing the meter rule, the administration must repair all the roads of the city. Due to bad roads the Auto drivers have to spend a lot of money on repairs. This exploitation of the Auto drivers must stop.
The social media is a buzz after this statement was made.
Isn’t this an irresponsible statement by the elected representative. He is a law maker himself and is he says so then he should also come up and stand by the citizens when they are charged for traffic violations. We also use the same roads as autos do. We also drink the same water breathe the same air. Then why protection for them and not ALL. Don’t we also pay for repairs of bikes and cars.
It has always been seen that the elected representatives may be from any party always support the Auto drivers, which is understandable as it is a solid vote bank.
But we as common citizens also have the same rights given to us by the constitution then why is this special treatment for one section.
The honorable MP who is on this public post from 2004, which means for the past 13 years he is holding this office, why couldn’t he make some good roads so that the poor auto drivers dont have to cough up more money on the repairs.
Now it is upto the learned citizens of Belagavi to decide who is wrong and who is correct.
