Yesterday was an auto strike in Mumbai and Thane..the Navi Mumbai goons decided to stay away. The strike brings to the fore how well these hooligans in uniform are organised and how brazen they are. One of the important reasons for the strike – the demand is ‘we will not use the electronic meters’ – obviously because they cannot tamper with it!!
It is time that the users make a body called ‘Auto and Taxi users union’ which should also decide that they will not use autos if they behave like hooligans. Yesterday a friend traveled from Vashi to Nerul – and a lady also wanted to travel the same distance. The auto driver charged her Rs. 80 and my friend paid Rs. 70. Drivers total income Rs. 150. Distance about 12 km. Same rates as Jet Airways? LOL.
It is time the consumers tell them ‘this Friday we will not use an auto’ or reduce the usage by partially walking the distance.If the consumers cannot come together and prove that we are united, and also that we are not lazy I think we will have to suffer these hooligans.
Only an informed consumer is king – whether it is an auto or a ulip.
