With the Ola-Uber strike entering the fourth day, a meeting between the cab drivers' union and Maharashtra Transport Minister Diwakar Raote on Thursday failed to resolve the issue. Hence, the strike is likely to continue on Friday as well.

Speaking to mid-day, Sunil Borkar, secretary, Maharashtra Rajya Rashtriya Kamgar Sangh, a union of app-based cab drivers led by Nationalist Congress Party Mumbai President Sachin Ahir, said, "We held a meeting with the state transport minister in the presence of Opposition leader Dhananjay Munde. They assured us of a meeting with the Ola and Uber managements so that the issue can be resolved. Until our demands are met, the strike will not be called off."




"The cab aggregators are exploiting the drivers, hence, the government should intervene and look into their demands, which are completely valid. The strike is creating a lot of inconvenience for Mumbaikars," said Dhananjay Munde, Maharashtra Opposition leader.
