He had discussed the issue with the Chief Minister yesterday, he said.     

Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (which is controlled by Shiv Sena and BJP) had passed a resolution in this regard, and it was forwarded to the state government as it needed amendment to certain laws.

"Shops and Establishments Act and Police Act needs amendment which will be tabled in either budget or monsoon sessions," he said in another tweet.
