Governor and the Speed governor

The lorry lobby has been going ballastic against the governments order to implement speed governor in all transport and commercial vehicals aka control less demons. They have sucessfully held the governor – Rameshwar takhur to accept that it will be implemented only for new vehicles 2 days back.

They are back with bang in news and have given the next ultimatum. If the governor does not remove the order for new vehicles, they are back to strike from march 31st midnight.

The argument goes like this – ‘we had approached the High court regarding speed governors and is yet to be decided by HC so, it has to be in abyence till a decision comes’. Who can ignore a statutory body like HC?

But dear lorry wallahs, you have not hade the same heart when the ruling came from Supreme court stating all transport vehicles should have this control? It was the ultimate directive under which you ignored citing reasons which amounts to contempt of court?

You guys make the best folks for becoming politicians!!!

After multiple deaths in road accidents due to rashly driven, unmaintained and over exhausted transport vehicles, the SC gave the directive to all states. Kerala was the first to implement and back track. Karnataka has followed suite.

The major points against this ruling is the cost of a speed governor ( like helmet fellows making money, these traders are also into the same money making business) and bad roads.

Another few days when coolies will go without work and food ; common man will go without petrol, vegetables, medicine while the lorry owners relax!!

    Yes, had read vijays statement too. But, holding the common man for ransom based on flip-flop statements is the hieghts. Like some people commented, we should stop using these services and teach them some basic civil sense.

    Some bank unions were on strike today.
    The great sense of timing they show is amazing–just before two holidays…

  4. Prasanna sir,
    Latest is that our autowallahs have been able to tamper the software of the digital meter to give the jumps! Nothing better expected if the autowallah can ferry software customers regularly i gues!!

    Neel3,
    Its kind of a joke that these guys strike work. This time it has affected the stock markets too ( lack of liquidity). BSNL also was on strike if you didnt notice!!
