Sri Lanka trishaw drivers protest nano cabs

A group of trishaw drivers held a protest demonstration yesterday at the Hyde Park, Colombo against the Tata Nano taxi cab service.

The self-employed trishaw owners sought the government to intervene to safeguard their livelihood. They say their livelihood is under threat due to this taxi cab service.

Their protest was focused to the taxi cab service launched by Nano cabs Company, of which a major shareholder is reportedly a Colombo district MP of the ruling United People's Freedom alliance.

Reportedly, the company has received a tax concession to import 200 Nano cars at two third the normal market price in Sri Lanka.

The cheapest Nano car costs Rs. 925,000 in Sri Lanka, three timesmore than double the price in India due to heavy taxes.
