New Delhi: The strike by auto and taxi unions against app-based cab services in Delhi has been called off on Thursday.
The national capital's auto and taxi unions on Tuesday went on an indefinite strike against app-based taxi services, causing hardship to thousands of commuters.
Twenty unions of autos and taxis had formed a Joint Action Committee, which called for the indefinite strike.
The strike hit commuters hard with many stranded in several places including Connaught place, railway stations, and ISBTs.
Kishan Verma, president of All Delhi Auto-Taxi Transport Congress Union (ADATTCU), said the drivers of auto and taxi drivers are protesting against app-based services.
"Uber and Ola don't have permit to run their taxis in Delhi, but despite that the government is allowing them to take away our livelihood," Verma said.
