Bengaluru: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said he would write to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari asking him to withdraw a clause from Central rules, which mandates Class 8 as minimum qualification for getting a driver's licence.
"In the capacity of Delhi Chief Minister, I will write a letter to the central government and try to talk, asking for a speedy withdrawal of the clause from the Central Motor Vehicles Rules (Amendment). I will try to meet Gadkariji and apprise him of the difficulties auto drivers could face," he said addressing auto drivers here.
There is a huge opposition from auto drivers in Bengaluru over a new regulation that mandates Class 8 as minimum qualification for getting a driver's licence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi should listen to the problems of the auto drivers and solve them, the AAP leader said.
Attacking the Centre, Kejriwal said "the ease of doing business will not happen by sitting with Ambanis and Adanis alone, but happen by sitting with common people, shopkeepers, small industrialists, autowallahs and poor people."
