A Union of Vehicle Owners ?
Times of India ( 25 July ) carries following report :
“ Driverless tech will leave millions without jobs . won’t allow it : Gadkari “
- India will not allow driverless cars to ply on its roads, transport minister Nitin Gadkari said
- The minister added that focus of the government is to create more jobs to arrest unemployment
- He said there is already annual shortage of about 22,000 trained drivers in India
Shri Nitin Gadkari announced that the Ministry would launch a single mobile app for booking all kinds of vehicles – car, autos, e-bikes and e-rickshaws , which will end the monopoly of Uber and Ola
Gadkari said the government will provide a app-based platform where anyone who wants to start a cab business, can register and run vehicles
“ Why should two companies like Uber and Ola have a monopoly in the market ?
We want people , even those running cab business at a small scale , to have an equal opportunity to provide service to people .
The mobile app will provide a platform to such people , and better , efficient and cheaper cab services , to people “ , said Gadkari
The Minister said people will have many options to choose based on the most economic operator
Shri Gadkariji seems to be telling the Un-Employed of India :
“ Government cannot provide employment to 12 million persons , every year , but here is your chance to get Self – Employed
Government’s job is to facilitate people to get into business , for themselves “
Congratulations , Shri Gadkariji :
For taking this FIRST STEP which will UNIFY the vehicle owners
