Karachi: More Than 500 Qinchi rickshaw drivers stage grand rally today. The rally was held at afternoon and root of rally was Saddar and it was end at press club. The slogan of Qinchi drivers was: “Chinchi Rikshaw ki Sasti Sawari transport mafia pay Bhari.”
Talking to AwamiWeb correspondent, Qinchi driver said police constables are making Challan for no serious reasons of rs.300 to 500 due to the pressure of transportation mafia and this extortion is going on for last 5 days that’s why they call for rally against that.
A Policeman told that most of the drivers don’t have license and They don’t have the permit of the Govt to upload the passengers, like Mazda bus drivers have. Other interesting thing policeman told us that the transportation organizations (which include buses, Mazda) threat the govt to go on strike because the Chinchi Rikshaws are taking on their business and govt assured the transportation organization that we will not allow the Chinchi Rickshaws to come on main roads. That is why we have to be strict with the Chinchi drivers.
