Mumbai (Maharashtra): The Central railway will run extra trains as bus strike enters second day in Mumbai.
Reports said the Mumbai Central Railway has taken the decision to run extra trains on Wednesday to ensure commuters do not face difficulties.
This has been done in view of the indefinite Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply Transport (BEST) workers’ union strike.
Reports said the BEST employees began their indefinite strike from Monday midnight as their demand for merging of BEST budget with ‘A’ budget of BMC has not been conceded so far.
They are also seeking resolution of the issue of employee service residences and recruitment. As the deliberations with the authorities failed, the employees resorted to the strike, sources said.
The railway came to the rescue of commuters and pressed in more trains for the convenience of the Mumbaikars soon after the BEST strike.
