Nearly 25 crore people are likely to take part in an All-India strike on January 8 to protest against the Modi government’s “anti-people” policies. Ten central trade unions (CTUs) announced the participation on Monday.
“We expect participation of not less than 25 crore of working people in the forthcoming National General Strike on January 8, 2020, to be followed by many more actions seeking reversal of the anti-worker, anti-people, anti-national policies of the Government,” the 10 CTUs said in a joint statement as cited by PTI.
“The Ministry of Labour has failed to assure on any of the demands of workers which called a meeting on January 2, 2020. The attitude of the government is that of contempt towards labour as we construe from its policies and actions,” the statement added.
