Members of the Telangana Auto Drivers' Union today staged a dharna at the Secunderabad RTA office claiming "rampant corruption" amongst the officials, and demanded that the government curb corruption with an iron hand.
Addressing the gathering, Telangana Auto Drivers JAC convener Mohd Amanullah Khan alleged that no work could be done in the Secunderabad RTA Office without greasing the palms of the staff.
He also demanded the immediate suspension of RTO Venkat Ramana for "harassing" auto drivers if they failed to pay him bribes for any RTA work.
TAD-JAC leaders B Venkatesham, M A Saleem, Maraiah, Rafatullah Baig, A Satti Reddy, Mohd Azeemuddin and others, too, spoke at the gathering and threatened to intensify the agitation against the "corrupt" practices of the RTA officials.
