Trains resume on Mumbai’s Central line as job-seekers call off agitation

Mumbai: Train services on Central Line have resumed as students, who have been demanding jobs, have called off their agitation.

Earlier in the morning around 7, students who were demanding jobs in railways, blocked the rail track, forcing the authorities to stop the suburban as well as express trains in the affected section between Matunga and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.

The sudden strike was called by the All India Act Apprentice Association. The strike came at a time when the Modi government announced that Indian railways will recruit 90,000 job aspirants.

The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena and the Congress extended their support to the protesters, demanding that the BJP-run government heed the demands of the students.
