At 7.45 i took a share an auto meant for three passengers with registration no.MH 02 VA 1912 from Lokhandwala Kandivli east to go to Kandivli station.
As we travelled a few meters he stopped to take another passenger who sat next to the driver. At Hanuman Nagar the three passengers got off and paid full fare. The Auto driver insisted on waiting for more passengers. On one trip he got full fare from 4 passengers but was not satisfied. Despite my protests he continued to wait for more pasengers saing he will not proceed till he gets more passengers. Besides he was chewing paan/ghutka and kept spitting on the road, even when the risksha was in motion.
Day by day the plight of people travelling from Lokhandwala is getting worse. In teh evenings most rikshaw drivers refuse to ply rikshaws to Loknadwala. If they do they insist on charging Rs 10 per head insteed of the normal fare of Rs 7 for a shared rikshaw. Is there no one to help customers in distress? This daily shooting up of BP will take its toll. I hope some
