Making petitions may bring in some changes if the government is sensible and really understands the problem of the public.
Otherwise to pressurise the government or the concerned management the regular agitations or movements has to be taken up. Gandhiji has protested against the British government with a variety of moments like non-cooperation, Uppu Satyagraham, swadeshi clothes and others. These days for any small and unreasonable reasons also the people are going for bundhs, demonstrations and strikes.
In my opinion these unreasonable movements will not yield any positive results.
