New Delhi, Aug 16: Commuters in the city may face hardship tomorrow as a major auto-rickshaw union has called for a one-day strike to protest the arrest of social activist Anna Hazare.

“All the auto drivers affiliated to our union have been asked to stay off the roads tomorrow to mark our protest against the arrest of Hazare,” said Rakesh Agarwal of ‘NyayaBhoomi'.

Agarwal claimed the union has a membership of over 10,000 auto drivers.

“Like all other citizens of the country, auto drivers are too badly affected by corruption. And we condemn the way the Government is trying to crush the anti-corruption movement led by Hazare,” Agarwal said.

Agarwal also said that all auto-drivers, belonging to the union, have been asked to participate in a protest march from India Gate to Parliament House tomorrow. PTI
