Addressing a rally of e-rickshaw drivers at Chhatrasal stadium, Kejriwal asserted that his government is 'pro-poor' and said, 'You voted us to power and now it is our responsibility to look after you.'
On the occasion, he distributed cheques of Rs 15,000 to 26 drivers who have already registered their e rickshaws with the transport department. He also thanked Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari for supporting Delhi government's endeavour by extending time limit for registration of e rickshaws.
'We thank Nitin Gadkari for extending last date of registration which is March 31 by which all e rickshaws must be registered,' Kejriwal said.
The chief minister has directed the transport department to develop parking facilities for e-rickshaws, which he termed as 'the best mode of transport' for saving environment. He also invited e-rickshaw drivers to his residence tomorrow morning to hear their problems.
