CHANDIGARH: Welcoming the decision of the UT administration, Hitesh Puri, Chairman of Crawfed, said that it is okay to approve 500 CNG auto-rickshaws, public transport will get a boost with this step but the administration must not allow any Auto to operate without any police verification. Without a thorough prior investigation No permit should be issued to any Auto.
The safety of the citizens must not be at stake, Chandigarh Police is still looking for a viper less auto involved in a rape case. The Chandigarh administration will have to ensure that the verification of the 1000 autos coming from Haryana and Punjab is done and that the Chandigarh Police has complete records and that no new auto will be able to join from Haryana and Punjab .
It is worth noting that some people change their address on Aadhar card and get their auto-registered in Punjab, though they themselves live in Chandigarh. But address on their RCs is of Punjab and in case of any untoward incident they remain untraced, the administration needs to make some policy regarding this Adhar Card address change scam too.
