Dhaka District Autorickshaw Sramik Union yesterday threatened to go for an indefinite strike from November 23 in the city if its 11-point demand is not meet immediately, says a press release.
The demands include withdrawal of all cases filed against the distribution of registration of additional 5,000 CNG-run autorickshaws among drivers, punishment to the CNG corruptionists, including Fazlul Haq, Mokhlesur Rahman, Golam Faruq and Barkat Ullah Bulu and implementation of the deposition money at Tk 450 daily.
The union leaders also demanded parking stands for autorickshaws in the city and stopping of renting the rickshaw to the drivers with false licences.
They alleged that due to lack of adequate autorickshaws in the city, the owners are taking extra charge from the drivers. So, the drivers are also taking extra fare from the passengers.
They threatened that no drivers with genuine licences would be able to drive the autorickshaws on the city roads from November 23 if their demands go unheeded.
