Mumbai commuters hit by auto strike

     Mumbai: Commuters in Mumbai were left stranded on Monday by a strike that was spearheaded by a Nationalist Congress Party-led auto-rickshaw union. The auto-rickshaw union is demanding a hike in the minimum fare. The action by the Mumbai Auto-rickshaw Men's Union (MAU) is taking place despite a minimum fare hike from Rs.11 to Rs.12 that was permitted by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) last week. Over 20,000 autos owing allegiance to the MAU went off the roads from midnight while the unions commanded by Congress, Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena opposed the strike.
