"We had a meeting with Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot on Tuesday. He assured us that he would consider our demands and asked us to wait for 10 days. "Today, they have formed a Fare Revision Committee. So keeping these things in mind we decided to postpone our strike for 15 days," he told PTI.
Rathore said the cabs drivers will return to work on Thursday. The cab drivers also staged a protest at Jantar Mantar on Wednesday to press for their demands.
