The Bombay High Court issued notices Thursday to the Maharashtra government, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the BEST Workers' Union over a PIL against the ongoing strike of employees of the civic bus service.
Thousands of workers of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST), the civic transport undertaking, are on strike since Tuesday for various demands, including salary hike.
The petitioner also urged the court to direct the state authorities to constitute a committee to look into BEST workers' demands.
Saying that the strike is causing inconvenience to over 50 lakh commuters in the megapolis, Mane sought an urgent hearing.
