The leaders of the rickshaw union were to have a meeting with the state transport minister today on this issue. However, the meeting has been postponed. The meeting has been postponed as Transport Minister Purnesh Modi was to visit the Statue of Unity.
The date and time of the next meeting will be announced later. However, the president of Ahmedabad Rickshaw Ekta Union said that if the government does not show a positive attitude on the issue of rickshaw pullers, the fight will continue in the near future.
