Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], November 13 (ANI): Maharashtra Transport Minister Anil Parab met NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Saturday morning and held talks regarding the ongoing strike by Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) employees.
The employees of MSRTC have been protesting for the last 15 days. Today is the 16th day of the protest.
So far 2,053 MSRTC employees have been suspended, a state transport department official said.

Earlier Bombay High Court had instructed the state government to form a committee to look into the demands of MSRTC employees which include the merger of the corporation with the state government to avail the benefits, and salary hikes.
The court had also said that after discussing with the stakeholders of MSRTC and the union, all the recommendations must be submitted in a report to the chief minister within 12 weeks. (ANI)
