Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray today said he would fight the government regarding the genuine demands of motormen.

"I am with the people and am prepared to fight the government for the just demands of motormen. Suburban services
are Mumbai's lifeline," which was collapsed due to the strike adding to the woes of Mumbaikars, Thackeray said.

"Even though the demands of the motormen are genuine, people cannot be held to ransom due to the government's
stupidity...," the Sena patriarch said in a statement.

After coercing two days of hardships to commuters, the motormen on suburban railway today decided to call off their
agitation after the state government assured that it would mediate between them and the Railway ministry.

Earlier, talking to PTI, Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said the party MPs would meet Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh in connection with the demands of the motormen.
