Against the Delhi government's policies on cab aggregators, auto-rickshaw and taxi unions have decided to go on a strike on Monday.

"The one-day 'Chakka Jaam' protest by the Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti will be held as the government failed to listen to our grievances," said Inderjeet Singh, chairman of the All India Tour and Transport Association and convener of the joint forum.

Due to wrong transport polices of the government, auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers are losing their employment, Singh said.

Auto-rickshaw and taxi drivers are also suffering due to low fares offered to commuters by cab aggregators, he said.

Thousands of members of the affiliated associations will also go on strike, he added.

Samiti was awaiting the state government's response on its offer to hold talks, Singh said.
