HUBBALLI: The lockdown 3.0 has been enforced with several relaxations and permission has been given for vehicular movement. However, the government has prohibited the plying of auto-rickshaws and taxis during this extended lockdown.
Poor auto-rickshaw drivers, who were sitting idle for over a month without any earning, were happy to see vehicles moving on roads thinking that they too can hit the roads and start earning.
But the drivers became nervous when they learn that police is not allowing the auto-rickshaws to ferry the passengers.
On Thursday, traffic police seize several auto rickshaws at several places in the City, including in Keshwapur and Chennamma Circle for violating the prohibitory orders.
