OK but to ban okadas in that area is not a problem hope their is provision for work or skill to be acquired. Because why am saying this is because when their is no way or means to survive or earn a living it make some people think negative. Government should make provision for work please

Enforcing regulations other than a ban seem to be better. I mean, not like an alternative source of income have been provided for these guys or alternative mean of transport has been provided for perimeters bikes cover. I just feel the pros outweighs the cons, and providing regulations and enforcing it would have done the job.
