Here to stay!



Today's newspaper reports that the Mayor of Calcutta, Sovan Chatterjee announced yesterday that fresh licences would be issued to hand-pulled rickshaws.

The Calcutta Municipal Corporation had stopped issuing licences in 2009 - following upon the former chief minister's announcement, in 2005, that the hand-rickshaw would be banned.

I hope this brings to an end the travails of the rickshaw pullers, in regard to the uncertainty surrounding their livelihood. Now it is time to empower the rickshaw pullers and improve their working and living conditions.

why can't the hand pulled rickshaws be replaced with cycle rickshaws like in other cities?
