As the government raised the petrol and diesel prices, B K Imthiyaz, President of Dakshina Kannada District Online Taxi Drivers Association asserted that online taxi drivers are suffering.

Talking about the problems faced by the driver, he added, ” They are not able to pay the EMIs to the banks, run their families, or pay the school fees of their children.”

Imithiyaz on the expectation from the state government, ” There were high expectations from the Karnataka government’s budget. But all our expectations were shattered.”
