What was the biggest financial blow you had to endure in 2012?
The budget of last year and the economic decisions were bad for auto drivers. The price hike of the LPG every now and then is a terrible thing. It is really becoming very hard for us to survive or do this work. We have our family to feed, and this high prices and hike in gas cylinder price, withdrawal of subsidy etc are big blows.
Would you welcome a tax on the super rich?
Yes, there should be such tax if that helps us in other ways.
What would you most like the finance minister to do in his upcoming budget?
We would just expect that the piece of the LPG would not increase further. The Government should think about us and provide us some relief.
