Letter to the Editor

Something needs to be done about the rickshaw federations and their demand for fare hike, each time fuel prices go up. It has become a ritual now, and it’s not helping anyone. After the RTA rejected their latest demand, they have threatened to go on a strike. They very well will do so, and in the bargain, we, the citizens, will suffer. I do sympathise with the rickshawdrivers. Like everyone else, they too need to make a living. But then, the same applies to others as well. The rising fuel prices affects not just the rickshawdrivers, but everyone else. Does this mean that the vada-pav vendor too should start changing extra, and our employers better raise our salaries too! I do support the fight for the right, if it is right!
