Ooty : Around 600 taxis in the Nilgiris were off the roads in this tourist town today in protest against the entry of Ola and Uber taxies.

The drivers and owners, under the banner of Nilgiris District Tourist Vehicle Owners and Drivers Association, alleged that the entry of such chain of cars would hit their livelihood hard. Since these taxies planned to operate from the district, a major tourist destination, over 600 taxis and thousands of drivers depending on them would be rendered jobless, they said.

Besides, the association also wanted the administration to levy tax on two-wheelers given on rent in the town, police said.

They staged a demonstration and raised slogans in support of their demand.
