NCP on Tuesday hit out at Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari for opposing the decision to ban the cab services of Uber across the country.
NCP spokesman Nawab Malik said Gadkari’s comment reflect as if he was a minister of the USA and not India.
In a tweet, Malik said, “Shame on you Mr Gadkari. Are you Transport Minister of India or USA? You are supporting Uber instead of standing by the victim.”
The government’s decision to stop the private taxi service by Uber across the country today evoked mixed reactions from political parties.
While a section, including Union Road Transport and Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari was not in favour of stopping the services of Uber, few MPs favoured action against the taxi service provider.
“New developments are taking place in the transport system through electronics. Banning the railways for train accidents, bus for bus accidents and taxis is not correct,” Gadkari said outside Parliament House in New Delhi.
