‘No passengers’: Chandigarh’s auto rickshaws struggle to restart in lockdown 4.0
After the fresh relaxations were announced by Chandigarh administration in lockdown 4.0, interestingly, most of the auto-rickshaws in the city are standing still as their drivers have left the city for their homes. Most of them from UP and Bihar had left Chandigarh after there was no source of livelihood left during the curfew. However, those running these rickshaws complain that there are no takers for the ride as well. One of the drivers also narrates his misery of how he has been surviving over the food given by the administration. He has also taken loans from local vendors to survive however future for him seems bleak as there are hardly any passengers for the rickshaws now. Watch the video for more details.
