Kolkata: Revellers in the city may be looking at an acute shortage of Ola and Uber cabs in the next two days, as over 5,000 vehicles are slated to be taken off the road. In a statement on Monday, the West Bengal Online Cab Operators Guild claimed that their delegation had visited the office of Uber in Salt Lake, to address multiple issues. The cab drivers are not getting the same rate of fare as regular AC cabs and are also getting their driver IDs blocked over small issues. When they tried to put their agenda forth, they were allegedly heckled out of Uber’s office, which offended the drivers. As a result, they decided to boycott duty until Wednesday. However, Madan Mitra, president of the guild, has urged them to consider the problems people would face in the festive rush.
