Dhemaji, October 27: The number of city rickshaws (e-rickshaws) is increasing in Dhemaji town. This has created problems for pedestrians and four-wheelers. Some regulations should be clamped to control the number.
The permission to give license to city rickshaws should be regulated, urged the people
of Dhemaji. They feel that the number of city rickshaws is increasing day-by-day. The number is nearly reaching 400 and it is assumed to cross this number if the certain regulations are not imposed. Besides, the rickshaws do not have a particular stand and the drivers make stands of their own wherever they like. It becomes most inconvenient to walk or ride vehicles on the Station Road, particularly from 8 am to 3.30 pm. The road is the busiest road in the town and many accidents take place frequently. There are three colleges, two high schools, three primary schools, three banks, telephone exchange, Head Post Office, SP and Judicial residences and many shopping outlets within a distance of 1.5 km. In the midst of that, some college students exhibit their bike stunts which create a lot of problems for pedestrians in particular and other people in general.
The people of Dhemaji have urged the Deputy Commissioner to fix a limit for issuing licenses keeping the town population in mind.
