Uber driver Usman refuses to switch on AC, tells lady passenger to ‘ask Modi to send a cab’

Rude and obnoxious behaviour of an Uber driver left the lady passenger shocked

In a shocking incident, in this hot and sultry weather, an Uber driver in Mumbai, Maharastra refused to switch on the cab’s air conditioner for his lady passenger and her toddler. On being questioned he told the lady to ask ‘Modi to send the cab’ for her.

A lady with Twitter handle @Sona2905, took to Twitter to narrate her ordeal. She booked an Uber to the Glomax Mall in Mumbai and was accompanied by her young kid. In this scorching heat, her Uber driver, Usman, refused to switch on the AC of the cab saying that it would put unnecessary pressure on the engine of his car.

On being asked by the lady passenger, as to why, then, did he take out his car in this heat, he replied in a rude tone that, “AC nahi chalega, jana hai to jao nahi to utar jao”. (AC will not be switched on, whether you choose to ride or get down).

While the lady passenger kept speaking in a polite tone the driver was allegedly uncouth in his approach. She politely asked him whether this was the way he behaved with all his passengers, to which he replied, “Mai kaise baat karega meri marzi, tum mat sikhao aur utaro” ( I will speak the way I want to, don’t teach me and get down).

However, she waited until she got another taxi. While getting down, the taxi driver, who seems to have observed the Prime Minister’s picture on the back cover of the lady’s mobile, said, “why don’t you ask Modi to send you a cab”.

That’s when the lady, who was a Modi supporter, realised that the driver had seen Modi’s picture on her phone while she was on a call when she took the cab. His dislike for Modi was probably the reason for his discourtesy.

Reminding all the so-called liberals, about the brouhaha created last year, for allegedly inciting communal sentiments, when a man cancelled an Ola booking because the driver was a Muslim, she said she wanted to see how many, liberals come up this time to raise their voices against the bigotry she faced.
