Over 1 Lakh Uber, Ola Cab Drivers In Telangana Threaten Hunger Strike From Today

Alleging that the app-based cab aggregators have retracted on the promises made to them at the time of hiring, over 1 lakh drivers belonging to both Uber and Ola have threatened to go on strike starting today.

“They are using unfair practices. The state government should come to our rescue. They (Ola and Uber) make tall promises to drivers during enrolment time.”

“The companies had promised that every cab driver would earn handsome money. But in reality, the picture is different. We request the state government to allow us to use meters so that we can run our vehicles as taxis.”

Taxi drivers have raised a set of demands, including clearance of outstanding dues, scrapping the star-rating system and removal of the mandatory three-trip compliance for incentives during surge hours.
