Guwahati: Former health minister and sitting BJP MLA Sudip Roy Barman yet again lived up to his smart and go-getter image.
On August 16 (Sunday), former minister Barman was on his way back from Santir Bazar in South Tripura where he had gone for some political work.
While he was passing through Udaipur, his vehicle was stopped by a group of Auto-rickshaw drivers at Brahmabari.
As usual, Sudip got down from his vehicle and interacted with the large group of people who introduced themselves as auto-rickshaw drivers.
Explaining the daily trouble and harassment they faced the auto-rickshaw drivers claimed that they had to waste 5/6 hours a day in collecting CNG gas as there was only one CNG machine in Udaipur.
Responding promptly, Sudip talked to the owner of the CNG station and urged an explanation as to why the poor auto-rickshaw drivers were being subjected to so much suffering and wasting of time.
The owner informed that there was only one CNG machine to fill up the auto-rickshaws and this was the root of the problem.
The former health minister asked the CNG station owner to add one more machine to ensure speedy delivery of CNG to the auto-rickshaws, explaining the legal position including questions of consumer rights.
As per reports, the CNG station owner agreed to solve the problem and within four days, has installed one more machine to deliver CNG to auto-rickshaw drivers promptly.
Meanwhile, auto-rickshaw drivers of Udaipur have expressed their joy and gratitude to Sudip Roy Barman for resolving their longstanding problem.
