GUWAHATI: In order to solve problems faced by auto-rickshaw drivers of the city, the four auto-rickshaw committees of Guwahati formed a coordination committee on Friday. The four auto-rickshaw committees – Guwahati Auto-Rickshaw Owners' Association, West Guwahati Auto- Rickshaw Association, East Guwahati Auto Rickshaw Society and All Guwahati Auto-Rickshaw Drivers' Union – formed their coordination as the Greater Guwahati Auto-Rickshaw Coordination Committee.
The newly formed committee consists of 19 people, Md. Iajul Haque as the president, Md. Yusuf Ahmed as the working president, Pabitra Kumar Baishya as the secretary, RupamKalita as the working secretary, Adip Kumar Phukan as the chief adviser and 14 others.
President of Guwahati Auto-rickshaw Owners' Association Yusuf Ahmed said that at a meeting convened by him the four of the committees came into the decision for forming the new coordination committee so that the new committee can play a role in solving the problems faced by auto-rickshaw drivers of the city.
Ahmed said, "Among many who had to go through a lot of difficulty due to the nationwide lockdown, the auto-rickshaw drivers of the city have also been suffering a lot. The source of earning our daily wage completely dried up putting our drivers into distress. Though we appealed to administration quite a few times, we received no positive response from them. The newly formed committee will soon sit for a meeting and it'll decide the future activities as to how to proceed to solve the miseries faced by the drivers."
