Black marketing in permits of Delhi auto-rickshaws: BJP

Posted on Nov 07, 09:53PM | IANS

The BJP here Wednesday held the policies of the state's Congress government responsible for black marketing and graft in getting an auto-rickshaw permit in the capital.

Leader of Opposition in Delhi assembly Vijay Kumar Malhotra and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi state president Vijendra Gupta said the government is creating an artificial scarcity by issuing only 10,000 permits instead of 45,000 as directed by the Supreme Court.

Authorities are indulging in graft while issuing permit for licences for auto-rickshaws, the leaders alleged.

"Instead of trying to provide relief to the harassed commuters, Delhi government's decision thus clearly violates the court orders and in the process it encourages and helps black marketeers," the duo said.
