On its third day, Tamil Nadu Transport Minister M.R. Vijayabaskar had appealed to bus employees to return to work.

Chennai sources have stated that a major controversy broke out on Wednesday after Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami tabled a bill in the Assembly that paves way for nearly doubling the salary of MLAs, evoking Opposition from DMK, which questioned the "timing" citing the ongoing strike by transport employees.

" People will laugh at us for this hike when transport workers in the state are on strike demanding salary hike", Stalin said. "For the past two days, the family members of the striking workers are on the street but the government is not doing anything about it", Stalin said.

The bill seeks to give effect to the decision taken by the state government a year ago to hike the pay for legislators and allowances for the chief minister and ministers with effect from July 1, 2017.

On Monday, the Madras High Court had refused to vacate an earlier interim order and directed employees of the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation to call off their strike.

The chief minister also rejected the Opposition charge that he had not held talks with the trade unions.

The unions had been asking for a 2.57 per cent hike.

"Protests would continue in front of Tamil Nadu Labour Welfare Board offices across the state of Tamil Nadu", said Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) leader A. Soundarrajan.

Few hours ago, the court urged striking Transport unions to resume to work immediately.

"Tamil Nadu MLAs' pay is much lower than that of MLAs in many other states".

The court also directed the state government to clear the pending dues of the workers. It told the state to not terminate the services of any worker without its permission.
