For the last 10 days, Ola and Uber drivers have organised a protest against the app-based cab aggregators due to certain demands. The cab drivers have completely come together to arrange a strike and have refused to drive which has resulted in a lot of inconvenience for the commuters. Meanwhile, the cab drivers from Ola and Uber have met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Chief Raj Thackeray in regard to the strike. 

Accordingly, Thackeray has agreed to support the protest and has also assured complete support from MNS Transport wing for the same.

Maharashtra Rajya Rashtriya Kamgar Sangh stated that 80 per cent of the demands of the Ola and Uber drivers have been met. However, they further added that the drivers will protest till all their demands are fulfilled and only after that, they will call off the strike.

In the meantime, the demand to increase the basic pay price to ₹12, ₹15, and ₹19 per kilometre has been accepted. Also, the companies won’t levy commission on per kilometre pay price and they have also agreed on allowing the lease of the cab. 

MRRKS stated that they will organise a meeting again on Thursday and will protest till all the demands are met. In the meantime, the commuters and daily travellers have been facing problems due to the strike and as long as the strike continues, their misery will also not come to an end.
