RS Rathee, member of Toll Hatao Sangram Samiti, Gurgaon said, “The protest which we were doing, was to remove both the toll plaza's, but the government has taken up the decision to remove only one toll plaza. Though we are happy that Sirhaul toll plaza has been removed, but we will not give up our fight till the Kherki Dhaula toll plaza is also removed.”
The Kherki Dhaula toll plaza is equally troublesome for the commuters of Gurgaon and Manesar, as was the Delhi-Gurgaon Sirhaul Toll Plaza. With one getting removed and an extra burden put on the other, the battle seems to be half won for the people and organizations like Toll Hatao Sangram Samiti (THSS), Gurgaon Citizen's council, who were fighting for the removal of both the toll plazas.
Col. Kanwar Bhardwaj, Chairman THSS has shown his concern about not removing the Kherki Dhaula toll plaza and increasing the charges of it, “It will be a relief for the people using the Sirhaul toll plaza, but the removal of Kherki Dhaula toll plaza will take some time. The chief minister has himself on various occasions said that the toll plaza should be removed, so we hope that Kherki Dhaula toll plaza also will be removed soon.”
On the same lines Gaurav Singla, PRO Gurgaon Citizen's council said that, they will continue their protest for the removal of Kherki Dhaula toll plaza. “We will soon have a committee meeting and will discuss on the issue of price rise on the Manesar toll, as our primary agenda because the charges are almost doubled,” he said.
While the THSS is perhaps the only registered body which is fighting for the toll plaza removal, but there are several other groups and individuals fighting for the same cause and Mangat Ram Baghri, MCG Councillor, Gurgaon, who was even arrested for this cause, said, “We will intensify our protest, and will ask the government to remove the Kherki Dhaula toll plaza as soon as possible.”
