Pune: Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Vandana Chavan has written a letter to Rail Minister Piyush Goyal for making provision for Cool Cabs in the railway premises. In her letter, she also requested him not to close down Maaldhakka goods shed. 

She wrote, “Maaldhakka goods shed has been an integral part of Pune and the station for many years. With the closure of Maaldhakka goods shed, many daily wage labourers will be unemployed, who used the station to carry heavy luggage at the railway station.”

“Since there is no use giving repeated memoranda about this, the senior social worker Baba Adhav has started the dharan agitation from 11th December. However, the railway administration has not responded,” she stated. 

She wrote about the Cool Cabs, which were replaced by the aggregator app service Ola and Uber. “Cool Cab is an integral part of the railway station. The railway has given a proper area to Uber and Ola. Since Cool Cab owners did not participate in the tendering process because they were not well organised, they could not be deprived of parking space. Cool Cabs are safe for the people of Pune, especially women.”
