Women driving toto-rickshaws received uniforms from Siliguri town and Dabgram-Foolbari e-rickshaw owners’ and drivers’ association today in presence of tourism minister Gautam Deb and officials of Siliguri metropolitan police (SMP).
Sub divisional officer Siraj Danewar was also present in the programme.
“We support the women who run e-rickshaws despite all odds to run their families honestly. We convey our support to them always. We appeal to them to drive the three-wheelers maintaining traffic regulations,” Deb said.
Deputy commissioner of police (traffic) of SMP Nagendranath Tripathy also appreciated the effort of the association.
Ranjan Sarkar, opposition leader of Siliguri municipal corporation and others said that the other women toto-drivers would be offered uniforms too after they received registration numbers from the competent author (EOIC)
