‘The usual practice of the union to force its way is being viewed seriously by the district authorities’
Dimapur, Sep. 12 (EMN): A tough-talking Dimapur district administration on Tuesday refuted claims of it having come to an agreement with the protesting auto rickshaw drivers and, rather, directed the latter to adhere to the revised fares issued by the authorities on August 19 last.
This statement, contained in a press release issued by the deputy commissioner of Dimapur, was in response to the claim made by the Dimapur District Autorickshaw Drivers’ Union (DDADU) that the district authorities had agreed to “look into their demands”.
According to the DC, the strike was called off by the drivers “unconditionally.” On Monday, DDADU members had claimed that they had served the district administration with one-month period to revise the current rates.
“The DDADU is hereby notified that the fixation of rates are a prerogative of the state and fixed after due consideration. The rates will be revised as and when felt necessary by the authority and not at the convenience and terms of the union. The usual practice of the union to force its way is being viewed seriously by the district authorities.
“No union or association has the right to cause irreparable inconvenience to public to get to its claims. Now therefore, the DDADU is hereby directed to strictly abide the rules and regulations issued by the competent authority from time to time. They are also directed to adhere to the autorickshaw fares as revised by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA)…dated the 19th August 2017,” it stated.
