Amritsar, May 4

Auto-rickshaw drivers and vendors staged a protest against the Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the state government on Tuesday.

The demonstrators, led by Mahesh Verma, president, Street Vendors’ Union, said, “The government is not worried about the poor situation of vendors. The fruit and vegetable sellers buy fruit from market but are not able to sell it due to lockdown restrictions. The government should relax the norms for perishable commodities. Moreover, the restriction of two passengers on auto- rickshaw is impractical. The diesel-run auto-rickshaws can’t be viable without five passengers.”

The vendors collected donation for Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh and sent it to him in protest.
