The directive which was issued by District Magistrate (DM) Chandra Bhushan Singh was welcomed by the workers and managers at petrol pumps.
A social worker in the city also appreciated the move.
I myself came in without a helmet and was denied petrol in almost all the pumps I visited in Aligarh today. I congratulate the DM and his entire team for this initiative and think it should be strictly followed for the safety of the public. This will save a lot of lives.
Twitter is also praising this rule.
