GUWAHATI, June 21: Members of the Sadou Guwahati E-Rickshaw Chalak Santha (SGERCS) demonstrated at Dighalipukhuripar in city today in support of their various demands, and submitted their memoranda to the Kamrup (M) Deputy Commissioner, the Transport Commissioner and the GMC Commissioner through the Kamrup (M) Deputy Commissioner. In a statement issued to the press today, Santha president Biren Sarma and secretary Milan Bey said: “E-rickshaws are very popular everywhere in Guwahati nowadays. Many youths have got self-employment through E-rickshaws in the city. Such rickshaws are free from smokes, and as such, from pollution. This apart, no fuel is used to drive such rickshaws. This has been accepted by the communters as a fair mode of transportation. Strangely enough, there has been no steps from the authorities concerned to accept E-risckshaws as a regular mode of transportation. We appeal to the government to accept E-rickshaws as a regular mode of transportation through their registration, issuance of license and permits etc. We want the GMC to provide us stands and registration. We also want the district administration to provide us secuirty. Till all such measures are taken, the authorities concerned should provide us facility to ply E-rickshaws as a temporary measure.”
