Amidst protests staged by taxi drivers opposing the Supreme Court ban on non-CNG-fuelled taxis in the city, causing heavy traffic jams all around, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has lent his support to the drivers. The AAP-led Delhi government has now moved to the Supreme Court against the ban on diesel cabs from plying in the city.
The Delhi government reportedly said that the Supreme Court order had caused law and order problems in the city and requested the Supreme Court to remove diesel cabs from NCR in a phased manner.
This comes a day after Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay hit out at the Kejriwal government for not appealing against the ban on diesel taxis.
Meanwhile, three days after the Supreme Court ruled that diesel cabs will be in from the National Capital, cab drivers continued to block roads in protest.
