THE ATTACHED FILE IS THE COPY OF LETTER SENT OUT TO ALL THE E-HAILING APP COMPANIES BUT, WHILE MYKAB AND JETRIDE REPLIED AND EACH OF THEM REQUESTED FOR A MEETING BETWEEN THEIR COMPANY AND PEDPA, UBER AND BOLT IN THEIR USUAL WAY REFUSED TO ACT ACCORDINGLY EVEN AFTER ACKNOWLEDGING OUR LETTER. THIS SHOWS THAT UBER AND BOLT IS STILL RUNNING FROM THERE RESPONSIBILITIES, AT PEDPA WE WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE IN THEIR NONCHALANT ATTITUDE TOWARDS ISSUE OF DRIVERS INTEREST AND WELFARISM. AS WAIT THEIR COMPLIANCE LET’S PREPARE AS WE WILL COMMENCE THE 26TH OCTOBER MOTHER OF ALL STRIKE WITH FULL COMPLIANCE OF ALL THE E-HAILING DRIVERS IF UBER AND BOLT FAIL TO COMPLY WITH DRIVERS DEMAND
