Almost 50 per cent Ola and Uber drivers went on an indefinite strike on Tuesday - October 22 - demanding to increase their income and minimum fare for the cab services. In order to resolve the matter, a delegation of drivers met Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Sachin Ahir followed by their meeting with Maharashtra Transport Minister Diwakar Raote. 

The drivers have appealed to the state government to create an application, which shall be fully controlled by the government. This protest comes after the hike in fuel prices across the country.
