"The odd-even system mars the drivers who work on a daily wage basis.", said Lal Bahadur Kami, the district chairperson of Cart entrepreneurs and Labor organization. He condemned the district traffic police for making the life of drivers difficult instead of regulating the auto-rickshaw by licensing.
