BENGALURU: The drivers of app-based taxis, Ola and Uber have decided to go on a strike till their demands are met. The strike began on February 22, 2017 and will be indefinite.
The cab drivers are protesting against the cuts in their incentives and an end to Rs 500 fine imposed for cancelled rides.
Speaking to The Beacon, Tanveer Pasha, president of Ola, TaxiForSure and Uber (OTU) Drivers’ and Owners’ Union, said, “The strike is indefinite. We will continue the strike till we get justice. We demand the government to ban Ola and Uber from Karnataka. The government is not supporting us. We are just being played between the Ola and Uber company and the government.”
