Protest in Ganderbal against sumo fares
Ganderbal, Dec 23: Hundreds of people today staged protests here against the Sumo operators for charging exorbitant fares.
People of Sindhbal, Sheikhpora, Galdalpora, Warpora and adjoining areas staged protests at Sindhbal and blocked the Beehama-Dab road for many hours.
“The Sumo drivers charge us Rs 15-20 instead of Rs 9 as per the rate list, from Sindhbal to Beehama. Ironically, the concerned authorities are acting as mute spectators to the issue,” said Zahoor Ahmad a local.
President Human Rights Watch, Ganderbal Zahoor Ahmad and General Secretary, Showkat Ahmad assured the residents to take up the issue with concerned officials.
Later, the Station House Officer (SHO), Police Station, Khirbhawani, Ilyas Ahmad reached the spot and assured the people that they will be charged Rs 10 for the said route. Following the assurance, the protesters dispersed peacefully.
