A+ A-Hyderabad: The Telangana State Taxi and Drivers Associations’ JAC on Thursday announced that 50,000 Ola, Uber and IT companies’ cab drivers will launch an indefinite strike on October 19.
The cabbies have called the strike in support of their list of six demands given on August 8th to the Transport Ministry as well as Uber, Ola and IT sector companies.
The drivers are seeking better living and work conditions by pegging the minimum fare at Rs 22 per kilometre.
JAC said that a tab should be kept on the number of cabs attached to aggregator marketplaces in order to guarantee minimum business to all drivers.
Shaik Salauddin, chairman of the Telangana State Taxi and Drivers’ JAC (TSTD JAC), said that the taxi drivers would refrain from work and switch off their phones as a mark of their protest.
