Telangana Two-wheeler Riders’ Association has warned that they would organize a twin-cities’ bandh during the ensuring Assembly session if the Traffic Police continued to harass two-wheeler riders in the name of compulsory helmet rule.
Association convener Mohd Amanullah Khan sand an anti-helmet meeting of the two wheeler riders will be held shortly and the date of the proposed bandh will be announced.  The association has been demanding that a resolution be passed in the ensuing Assembly session permitting all communities to wear turbans instead



of helmets. “Like Sikhs, everyone should get a waiver”, Mohd Amanullah Khan said, adding that the State government should pressurize the Centre to amend Sec.129 of Motor Vehicles Act to ensure that two-wheeler riders are not inconvenienced.
Khan also threatened nationwide strike if no amendments are made to the helmet law. United States and some western countries have done away with the compulsory helmet rule.  In India, it was only being implemented so that the traffic officials can harass riders and take bribes from them, he argued.
