Mumbai: After train services were affected due to students protesting on railway tracks, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis informed the legislative assembly that the railway administration has begun talks with the protesters, who are demanding railway jobs.

The protest by agitating students that crippled the suburban train services on the Central Railway in Mumbai this morning was called off following Railway Minister Piyush Goyal's intervention, officials said.
