Kolhapur, Oct 17 (UNI) Autorickshaw operators and private transporters today staged protests near the Kolhapur Municipal Corporation (KMC) to draw attention to the pathetic condition of the city roads.
The autorickshaw drivers and private transporters withdrew their vehicles from the roads since last midnight and assembled in front of the KMC. The agitation was organised jointly by the Autorickshaw Action Committee and the District Private Transporters Association.
KMC standing committee chairman Sambhaji Jadhav, and corporators Sunil Kadam, Uday Salokhe and others met the agitators and assured that repairs of roads would be undertaken on a war-footing and completed within two months.
Following the assurance, the autorickshaw operators and private transporters called off their agitation but warned that they would resume the stir if the roads were not repaired within two months as promised.
