Ludhiana, April 23
The Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab is likely to announce some financial relief for the transporters of the state.
In a tweet, the Aam Aadmi Party announced that Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann will make an important announcement for the betterment of the transporters of the state. “Auto-rickshaw drivers and Cab drivers will get a major relief,” the tweet read.
A level-playing field is expected from the Aam Aadmi Party as some reports suggest that the private bus companies owned by politicians get extra time to pick up the passengers. The government is expected to come up with a solution for it.
Other than the bus drivers, announcements in the favour of auto-rickshaw drivers of the state are also expected. Before the elections, AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann had a meeting with the auto drivers in Ludhiana. Arvind Kejriwal also had dinner at an auto-rickshaw driver’s house.
