Port Blair, March 6: “We never forget all party’s contribution to render unparallel support during our struggle and Dharna on 31st January 2013 and the Hon’ble Member of Parliament who sat along with the All Party’s Senior Leaders for our cause and thereafter was arrested by the Police. The Member of Parliament never did mind to sit on the road with us, which reflects a true public representative, Andaman Islands have ever had”, said the President, A&N Tourist Vehicle Drivers Welfare Union on the issue of opening of Andaman Trunk Road for tourist.

The President further said that the A&N Administration under the compulsion had to bend down before the public anger and sentiments. It thus prayed to the Hon’ble Supreme Court for review the use of ATR passing through the Jarawa reserve territory by the tourists as well, until the alternate sea route is developed.

“We express our deep gratitude to all the Parties who stood behind us day & night during our struggle”, expressed the President, A&N Tourist Vehicle Drivers Welfare Union today.
