Ola, Uber And Other Taxi Drivers In Mumbai Refuse To Paint Their Taxis Saffron

Published on 11 April, 2017 at 10:56 pm By

One would think that the “saffron streak” has ended with the BJP getting into power in UP. However, a different kind of “saffron streak” was about to happen in Mumbai.

Cabinet minister, Diwakar Raut, has ordered all the taxis in Mumbai area to be painted either saffron or yellow. Unhappy with the order, the Maharashtra Tourist Permit Committee has sent a four page application refusing to paint the taxis orange. The application reads that the new rule by Raut is against the rules and that a person votes for his favorite candidate in the elections. If elected, the person becomes a minister and sometimes his decisions make the public suffer.

Praful Shinde, a member of Maharashtra Tourist Permit Committee, said that when all religions are equal in the eyes of the law, then why has the minister chosen the color saffron? The union has also questioned the minister as to when the government has designated colors for the taxis, who is going to pay poor drivers for the paint job?



 

Every now and then, we read about the decisions taken by ministers on their whims and fancies. The uncontrolled and the unchecked power granted to such ministers is creating trouble for the public. It is time such ministers learn that they are there to serve the public, not cause inconvenience.
