Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], October 19 (ANI): Strike by the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) demading implementation of 7th pay commission entered its third day on Thursday.

Eight hour meeting of the MSRTC staff with the state government representatives remained inconclusive yesterday.

Pressing for their demand of salary hike, the workers of MSRTC asserted that the strike won't be called off until their demands are met.

"Ours, along with other transport unions want 7th pay commission to be implemented in the MSRTC. We were also in conversation with the government but they paid no heed to our problems.

Therefore, we have now called an indefinite strike," Dileep, a member of a staff union said earlier.

More than 17 thousand buses run throughout the entire state, and about one lakh workers are on strike.

Meanwhile, this strike has left the daily commuter troubled.

The passengers have appealed to the government to look into the matter. (ANI)
