Mumbai: Ola and Uber drivers are likely to resume strike from November 17, alleging that the promises made to them by the companies have not be fulfilled. The cab drivers will also take out a protest march from Bharat Mata in Dadar to Mantralaya in South Mumbai on November 19.

Mahesh Jadhav, president of Marathi Kama-gar Sangathan, which is also associated with Maharashtra Rajya Rashtriya Kamgar Sangh (MRR-KS), has confirmed the development. Meanwhile, Uber has issued a statement saying that they have fulfilled the promise on fuel price increase.

The Ola and Uber strike, which went on for twelve days, was called off on November 2, after Ola and Uber promised them that they would give some incentives for the losses by November 15. It was also assured that the cab aggregators would also decide the price for per kilometre ride, they will also look into the fuel charges and other problems too. The companies were supposed to come to a conclusion before November 15.

Mr Jadhav said, “Both, Ola and Uber did not fulfil even a single promise and hence, we have decided to resume the strike from November 17.”

The city has around 50,000 app-based cars. The drivers were deman-ding a minimum base fa-re of `100 to `150 depending upon the range of the cars, while the per km fare should be increased to `23 from `18.
