IANS February 23, 2017

Delhi Congress on Wednesday extended its support to Ola-Uber drivers’ union Sarvodaya Drivers, saying that “the party is with them in their fight for justice.”

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ajay Maken held a detailed discussion with the union’s representatives about “exploitation” of the drivers by companies like Ola and Uber and assured them of his party’s support, a statement said.

“The Ola-Uber drivers should form a cooperative society and start a separate mobile phone app to do their business, in which the Delhi Congress will help them” — Ajay Maken, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president  

“The Ola-Uber drivers should form a cooperative society and start a separate mobile phone app to do their business, in which the Delhi Congress will help them,” the statement quoted him as saying.

The Congress leader said the drivers should be given financial aid so they can become independent, and so the money they earn stays in the country.
