Moirang ARCS office stormed
MOIRANG, 7th Oct: Members of several commercial transport organisations of Moirang and nearby areas stormed the office of Assistant Registrar Cooperative Societies on Monday demanding to cancel the registration of E-Rickshaw operating in the area.
During the agitation, general secretary of United Diesel Auto Rickshaw Owners and Drivers’ Association told newspersons that the protest was carried out jointly by members of 13 transport organisations operating in Moirang demanding to cancel the registration of E-Rickshaws as the registration was done despite restriction made by the Joint Transport organisations as well as in violating the terms of Manipur Societies Registration Act 1989 and Manipur Societies Regulations Rules 2004.
The general secretary also asserted that giving registration to a new transport body by violating the conduct of Manipur Societies Registration Act poses as a hurdle to the existing transport service providers. He appealed to authorities concerned to cancel the registration of the E-Rickshaw by October 10, failure of which will be met with various intense democratic agitations.
On the other hand, a spokesperson of ARCS told newspersons that the registration of the E-Rickshaw body was made under proper channel and with all necessary documents.
