The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), addressing a rally of battery-operated rickshaw operators in the national capital, said that due to lack of a clear policy, they were often fined heavily, affecting the livelihood of the operators, mostly from economically weaker background.
The rickshaw operators on Sunday held a rally at Jantar Mantar against their alleged exploitation due to lack of policy.
"We fully support the demands of these operators and would stand by them till the issue is sorted out," Kejriwal said. In the rally, the operators alleged that black marketing of e-rickshaws are going on.
They alleged though e-rickshaws costs around Rs 40,000, dealers charge them around Rs 1 lakh per e-rickshaw and don't even give proper receipts.
Addressing the gathering, Kejriwal said that those manual rickshaws operators who want to purchase e-rickshaws should be given subsidy by the government.
