Kejriwal along with three AAP MLAs met Jung at Raj Niwas and discussed the crackdown by Transport Department on e-rickshaws following the government's order rendering them illegal.
"I requested the Lt Governor to save the livelihood and employment of over 2 lakh drivers and ask transport officials not to impound these battery-operated rickshaws," he said.
Kejriwal said that he will also meet Union Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari so that e-rickshaw drivers are not challenged.
"I am writing to Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari requesting him not to issue challan to e-rickshaw drivers," Kejriwal said. He said that a policy on e-rickshaws needs to be formulated.
Kejriwal said that Jung told him that the matter is in the High Court and he will make sure no more e-rickshaws are challaned till the orders are passed. Hundreds of e-rickshaw drivers had yesterday gathered outside L-G secretariat and raised slogans against the transport department, demanding relief after the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) rendered them illegal via a notification issued on April 24.
