The Western Mazdoor Railway Sangh (WRMS) had held demonstrations over numerous demands that are pending with the government.
"We had deferred an all-India strike on July 21 after the government promised to look into our demands. A committee was formed to look into the matter and was asked to submit its report in three months," the railway veteran said.

Currently, the minimum wage that has been recommended is Rs 18,000 while the NFIR has demanded that it be increased to Rs 21,000. He also said that these days many educated people apply for trackmen post and therefore better opportunities should be given to them for promotion.
