HYDERABAD:  Telangana Auto Drivers Joint Action Committee would observe auto bandh for a day from September 1 midnight, to protest against ban on diesel-run autos around Charminar, which are alleged to pose environmental threat to the historic structure. The JAC contended that the restriction is not extended on taxi services like Ola and Uber, whose cabs also run on diesel. “A dharna would be held at Charminar at 11 am against the decision,” said Mohd Amanullah Khan, convener of JAC.
