On Friday, the president of Rickshaw owners in Margao, Shaikh Abdul Salaskar claimed that a tourist taxi driver from North Goa who had dropped his customer at KR station allegedly picked up another tourist for dropping the latter to North Goa. Salaskar said the tourist taxi driver was stopped from doing so by them.
Salaskar said a motorcycle pilot was in the process clinching this deal for the customer somewhere in Margao in the presence of the erring tourist taxi driver from North Goa. Salaskar said the motorcycle pilot was appealing to the said tourist taxi driver from North Goa to drop the tourist while returning to North Goa.
This, Salaskar said, is highly unethical, further claiming that they have reported such matters to KR police who direct them to Margao town police station. Despite the Margao town police taking a written undertaking from such erring tourist taxi drivers from North Goa, such instances continue, Salaskar informed.
He appealed to the leaders of North Goa tourist taxi association to stop such activities of such erring tourist taxi drivers from North Goa. Salaskar pegged the total number of taxis operating from Margao KR station at 104 and 350 rickshaws.
He said such unethical activities adversely affect their business prospects and livelihood.
