Rickshaw is against the beautification of any town. It has so many limitations but we have to think why rickshaws are main local transport in many towns. There are few points:
1. Town service buses are not providing adequate service.
2. Large number of poor people in that area and there is no jobs for them excepting pulling rickshaw.
3. Insufficient well constructed wide roads connecting each corners of the town.
If we look at Burdwan, point number 1 and 2 are fully applicable. Point number 2 may have a debate.
