Drivers of ridesharing app Uber went on a 24-hour strike from Sunday midnight to press their nine-point demand.
Dhaka Ridesharing Drivers Union and Bangladesh Ridesharing Drivers Association called the strike to protest against different irregularities of Uber and to fulfil their demands.
The demands include reducing Uber's commission to 12 percent from 25 percent and raising fare.
Following the strike in a statement Uber said, "We regret the disruption caused to the rider and driver-partner community, due to a small group of individuals. We strive to provide reliable and safe transport options to get around the city and hope to minimize any distress caused."
"We always prioritize the wellbeing of our driver-partners and have processes in place to address concerns and issues through our Partner Sheba Kendras and in-App feedback," the statement reads.
