The rickshaw strike in Ahmedabad received a mixed response, leaving passengers stranded at public places, including STs and railway stations. The strike, which started at 6 am and ended at 6 pm, was followed by a meeting of the anti-price hike committee in Ahmedabad, which raised the issue that neither the gas company nor the government has given any guarantee or decision to withdraw the hike after the strike. The movement will be taken to the state level in the near future. It has been decided in the meeting that rickshaw drivers will hold a rickshaw rally to Gandhinagar on April 26.
The vehicle that will be presented at this occasion will be a hybrid Toyota Corolla, which is already available for purchase in countries like Brazil where the design has been modified to operate on ethanol-blended gasoline.More
