Ola-Uber strike: MNS accuses firms of doing 'unlawful' business

20 March 2018

Uber already make sure of this that the drivers will be going for the strike, but today they are not worth to cover their costs and lose anyhow. The fare for a journey from Thane to CSMT (Fort area) was around Rs 1,250 on UberGO while a share cab fare was more than Rs 1,000 for the same route.

Last year, when drivers of these cab services went on a strike, commuters relying heavily on these app-based cab services were left with no choice but to pay nearly double charges to the auto drivers.

The strike, which began at midnight on Sunday, centred on the financial centre of Mumbai and was called by political party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) transport union.

Also, VP Everett Neville sold 4,895 shares of Express Scripts stock in a transaction on Thursday, March 1st. Executives with both companies praised the deal, which they hope to complete by the end of the year.

The strike from both the companies is organized by Maharashtra Navnirmal Vahatuk Sena and the strike will be observed in major cities like Hyderabad, Pune, Bengaluru, Mumbai, New Delhi etc.

"Our strike would continue till our demands are met and issues are resolved", MNVS President Sanjay Naik said.

This was put to motion when a video report by ANI showed an MNS worker damaging the windshield of a taxi in Mumbai and threatening the driver to stop plying the vehicle on the road in the wake of the strike.

Mumbaikars suffer as reconciliation attempts between cab aggregators and drivers failed on Monday; commuters either ended up paying surge pricing, or took trains, buses, autos. The protest will require the drivers to not login into the application and accept bookings.

A driver partner said they demand for a monthly income of Rs 105,000 guaranteed earlier, as their earning has turned to be less than Rs 30,000. Even though enterprises such as Ola and Uber have other vehicles to offer in their services such as autorickshaws or two-wheeler pillion rides, it was only the four-wheelers that went on a strike. While Ola declined to comment, an Uber spokesperson had termed the strike call as a speculative.

Since the entry of Ola and Uber in 2012, the cab aggregator space has been plagued by an increasing number of problems.

Marvin Bagley finished with 22 points, Gary Trent added 18 and the entire starting lineup finished in double figures. He scored 22 points, one shy of a season high and most he'd scored since getting 23 against Monmouth on December 9.

"We expect at least 80,000 drivers will support us in the strike. We can't cover more than 150 km in a day", Pawan Vishwakarma, an Ola driver partner for two years, said. Drivers of the cab aggregators allege that the firms are biased when it comes to granting them long rides, with which comes more money. "But drivers are unable to make even half of this because of the mismanagement by these companies", Sanjay Naik of Maharashtra Navnirman Vahatuk Sena said to the PTI.
