New Delhi: Delhi unit of BJP on Wednesday welcomed the gazette notification by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways on restarting operation of e-rickshaws.
"The notification issued today will pave the way for legal and safe operation of e-rickshaws not only in Delhi but in entire India," BJP's Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said.
He said that Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung should apprise Delhi High Court about this notification requesting for upliftment of the ban on the operation of e-rickshaws.
Upadhyay asked AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to take action against party leader Somnath Bharti as Delhi police had charged him with molestation, criminal intimidation, criminal trespass in connection with the January 15 Khirki Extension 'raid'.
"Arvind Kejriwal demands resignation from other party leaders on small issues; and today when the court has framed charges against his party colleague Somnath Bharti in connection with a serious international case connected with security of women, he should compel Bharti to resign from Assembly," he said.
