On 18 April, Delhi auto rickshaws and taxi union protesting app-based cab services called off their strike after Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, promised to take stringent action against the services.
He took to Twitter to announce that strict action would be taken against the services. "Received some complaints against Ola/Uber. Government planning strong action against them. Will announce it soon," he said.
Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh leader Rajendra Soni - who had earlier alleged that the Delhi government had not issued 10,000 new permits - has now said that the government has complied to most of their demands.
After a meeting with Delhi's transport minister, Gopal Rai, the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh leader was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "The government has conceded to all our demands. So we have withdrawn the strike. For three hours, we had a meeting at mantriji's (Rai's) home. They have assured to us in writing that action against Ola and Uber vehicles will be taken. We expect the vehicles to be impounded."
However, the Delhi government is yet to spell out the detailed actions that would be taken to meet the demands of Delhi rickshaws and taxi unions.
