The repercussions of this upward trend is affecting people from all walks of life. Cabs associations, vegetable vendors, motorists and others are expressing their anguish in various ways. While some claim to hold protests over the fuel price hike, many others are urging the government to roll back the prices.
Speaking to Express, Telangana Gig And Platform Workers Union (TGPWU) founder-president Sheikh Salauddin said, “As Ola, Uber, Swiggy, Zomato and other apps have not increased their drivers’ fare, the fuel price hike is directly affecting us. The lockdown was harsh, and now the fuel price increase is killing us.”
