"Late (Shiv Sena chief) Balasaheb Thackeray used to say that one should fight, not shed tears. I am a common person like any other in the state and I understand your challenges and sufferings," Shinde said.

"My government is committed to addressing your woes. Do not consider your life as worthless and do not take any extreme step," he said.
