To get rid of jam in Haridwar city on the weekend, the police administration banned auto rickshaw from operating on the highways. Whilst opposing, all auto drivers went on strike.
Auto drivers were displayed in several places with sticks in hands. In many places, the protesters stopped the vehicles forcibly. Somewhere during this period, there was also a bad argument. This led to a dispute.
The people had to face huge trouble due to the absence of available vehicles in the city in the fierce heat. Auto drivers have accused the police of harassment. Auto drivers stopped battery rickshaw drivers during the strike.
