Arvind Kejriwal unmoved by auto-taxi unions’ demands and people’s plight: Delhi Congress


Arvind Kejriwal should meet the auto-taxi union leaders and concede their demand for subsidy in CNG, as his sovernment has already earned over Rs 25,000 crore in excise duty from petroleum products, and giving subsidy to CNG will not create any dent in the income of the government, said Anil Kumar.

Delhi Congress chief addresses media on Monday

New Delhi: Delhi Congress on Monday said that the strike called by auto-taxi/cab strike has caused inconvenience to the commuters as they were stranded at many places, particularly at railway stations, ISBTs and crowded bus stops. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, however, is unmoved by the plight of the people, as he had refused to meet the auto-taxi unions to hear their complaints and find an amicable solution to their demands.

Delhi Congress president Anil Kumar said that that the auto-taxi/cab unions were not demanding a hike in the auto-taxi fare, as they did not want to put additional burden on the people who use autos and taxis for commuting, but the Arvind Kejriwal sovernment was determined to pass on the burden to the people, instead of giving subsidy to CNG, and the strike will continue on Tuesday too.

“Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who came to power on the bandwagon of the auto drivers, was ironically not even willing to meet the representatives of the auto-taxi unions now, as he has kicked the ladder that took him to power. Ch. Anil Kumar said that the chief minister, who fools and misleads people with his so-called sympathy for the “Aam Aadmi”, has exposed himself many times over, and his non-concern for the auto-taxi strike, and the difficulty that has caused to the commuters, was yet another example of his dual face, and the vast difference in his words and deeds,” said Kumar.

He demanded that  Arvind Kejriwal should meet the auto-taxi union leaders and concede their demand for subsidy in CNG, as his sovernment has already earned over Rs 25,000 crore in excise duty from petroleum products, and giving subsidy to CNG will not create any dent in the income of the government.
