CHENNAI: Pleading that the State government should ensure the sale of helmets for a fair price, CPM State secretary G Ramakrishnan said the government should stop taking action on those who did not wear helmets till fair prices are ensured. He said compelling people to wear helmets within a short span of time would only help traders sell helmets at a higher price and police to harass two-wheeler riders with fines.  A similar plea was made by Tamil Maanila Congress leader G K Vasan who said the State should extend deadline for making helmets mandatory at least by three weeks. Till then, police should just warn people who do not wear helmets. Those who earn an ordinary income too are using two-wheelers and they could spend according to their budget only. The traders should consider their economic situation and sell product at fair prices, he requested.
