Guwahati: Cab drivers not to work under Ola and Uber from August 1


Guwahati: The All Guwahati Cab Driver’s Union has decided that the cab drivers will not be working under Ola and Uber from August 1.

The decision was taken in view of the interest of cab drivers in the city as the cab drivers have not received needed incentives and the administration of Ola and Uber have not listed and fulfilled their demand.

According to sources Ola-Uber operators Ibrahim Ali and Debjit Deka tried to create confusion among the drivers, that the cab drivers have revoked their decision of not working under Ola and Uber. 

A press release was published to clarify that no government official or Ola-Uber authorities have consulted with the All Guwahati Cabin Drivers Union or any discussions have been held with the government or Ola-Uber authorities.

On Sunday the All Guwahati Cab Driver’s Union holds a massive protest against giant car rent operator Ola and Uber at Chachal in Guwahati.

The protest was staged by the cab drivers against the administration of Ola and Uber for exploiting them over the years.

During the protest, ‘Ola-Uber Go Back’ slogans were raised by the cab unions.

During the protest, the cab drivers have urged the Chief Minister of Assam Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma to pay heed to the unemployed cab drivers of Guwahati city.
