Mumbai taxi-auto drivers on strike from September 26, talks with government in vain

Mumbai: Auto-taxi drivers in Mumbai have threatened to go on strike from September 26. It is noteworthy that the meeting with the government regarding fare hike and other demands has been fruitless. On September 13, State Industries Minister Uday Samant held a meeting with office bearers of various auto-taxi unions in Mumbai.

Mumbai Taximan Union General Secretary A.L. Quadros said that the meeting promised to take a decision within ten days, but no action has been taken. Around 48,000 taxi drivers and around two lakh rickshaw pullers in Mumbai are demanding fare hike. “The government is not considering our demands, so we have decided to go on an indefinite strike,” Quadros said.
