Gujarat Congress chief Paresh Dhanani protests fine under Motor Vehicles Act
To protest the heavy burden of fines that the BJP government at the Centre and the state plan to impose on the citizens, leader of Opposition Paresh Dhanani on Sunday took to a series of tweets in which he posted pics of himself driving a cart pulled by buffaloes.
Dhanani said that the Congress party also planned to protest against the unreasonably high fines being imposed on citizens without the government providing corresponding facilities to them.
Before putting the people under financial burden it is the government 's duty to introspect whether it has provided the necessary infrastructure including public transport, good roads etc to ensure people can travel safely,"
Gujarat is all set to implement the amended traffic rules and fines under the Motor Vehicles Act 2019 from September 16 onwards.
The parking issues and concentrating on encouraging green vehicles is what the government should be doing at a war footing," he added.
