AAP delegates happy with RTO co-operation

Nagpur News : Aam Adami Party, Nagpur has launched a drive for enrolling members for the party. People from all walks of life are impressed by the working style of the party, particularly self-employed and worker class people. In this connection auto-rickshaw drivers and owners have enthusiastically enrolled themselves as members of AAP.

The auto-drivers and owners are displaying AAP stickers and posters on their vehicles, on their own since January.  These stickers and posters on the autos have a major share in popularity of the party in this area. So RTO authorities under pressure from the other parties had started taking action against such autos displaying AAP posters and imposed fines on them besides forcing them to remove the posters. The action was taken from January 18 to 20. Not satisfied with this the documents and permits of these auto-drivers/owners were also seized.

The lawyers wing of AAP called upon RTO, Sarjerao Shelke at his office on January 21 and informed him about the happenings.

In the meeting the RTO explained that if the said auto-drivers are members of AAP and have put these posters on their own, there will be no action against them. He said as per rule 134-A of the Maharashtra Motor Vehicles Rules, no permission from RTO is required as the AAP posters do not belong to commercial advertisement category. He further said that he would ask the concerned officials not to take any action against these persons. The delegation has thanked the RTO for clarifying in the matter and giving no objection to the effect.

Advocate Arvind Waghmare, Adv Tarun Parmar, Adv Ramkumar Dube and other delegates were present on the occasion and they have expressed satisfaction with the clarification and have thanked the RTO.
