Sir: Dark is the nation and insane the king. Parking mafia is charging Rs 50 per vehicle to park the vehicle in surrounding areas of I I Chundrigar Road without giving any receipt which testify that the amount is not being deposited in public exchequer and surprisingly if anyone refuse to pay Rs 50 his vehicle is lifted by car lifters and those who agrees to pay them their set amount ie Rs. 50 as parking fees, their vehicles are not lifted by car lifters which clearly shows involvement of car lifters. The question is that who has authorized them to charge parking fees on the roads and where the money is going taking on account of parking. Concerned authority should look into this matter and resolve the issue of parking at proper parking place instead on roads and then charge fees on parking.
