ANI  |  Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] 

Amid the ongoing protest staged by aggregators Ola and drivers, Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Monday accused the companies of indulging in unlawful business practices.

Speaking to ANI, leader demanded that the ride hailers comply with norms similar to that of the fleet of yellow-black taxis in the state.

"We demand that Ola and taxis agree to the laws by which the yellow-black taxis are run. They are doing business unlawfully," he said.

Cab prices are at an all-time high on Monday as an indefinite strike, called on by MNS' wing, Navnirman Vahtuk Sena here, is being staged by both Ola and drivers affiliated to the MNVS, along with members of several major unions.

The drivers are reportedly agitated over non-payment of assured income and alleged they incurred heavy losses due to a shortage of funds.

On a related note, drivers have reportedly been asked to stay off roads in Bengaluru, and as a mark of support to the uprising.
