Ursila Ali and Sheikh Saaliq

The union of Autorickshaw drivers in Delhi, is one of the biggest of its kind in the country. An integral part of public transport system in the city, their strikes to reduce gas prices and increase fare create waves even in the parliament. Every election, various political parties try to woo this group in their favour. Their network is spread in the farthest ends of the city, providing near accurate predictions of election results.

In the recent state elections, the auto rickshaw drivers played a vital role again, by connecting with the newly formed Aam Aadmi Party. Many of them say that the new party met all their demands, less gas rates, freedom from constant police harassment and hike in the  fare. Will the Aam Aadmi Party manage to get the Autowallahs on its side again for the Lok Sabha elections of 2014?
