Active participation of workers in strike indication of extent of anger against govt policies: CITU

Wednesday, January 09, 2019

New Delhi: The expanse and active participation of workers in the two-day strike which began yesterday is a clear indication of the extent of their anger and  resentment against the policies of the government, the CITU said.

It said that around 20 crore workers from all sectors of the economy have participated in the strike across the country. The strike would continue on January 9. "The unprecedented expanse and active participation of the workers in the two-day strike is a clear indication of the extent of anger and resentment of the workers against the neo-liberal policies and the attacks on their working and living conditions perpetrated by the government's policies," said the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) in a statement.

It alleged that the strike was the result of the discontent over the BJP-led Narendra Modi government's policies which were for the benefit of big corporates and business houses, both foreign and domestic, "with least concern for the plight of the toiling people".

The strike, which was supported by sectors like telecom, health, education, coal, steel, electricity, banking, insurance and transport, affected train movement as well as normal life across states like West Bengal, Kerala, several districts of Karnataka, North-Eastern states and Odisha, the CITU said. The 10 CITUs which have gone on strike include INTUC, AITUC, HMS, CITU, AIUTUC, TUCC, SEWA, AICCTU, LPF and UTUC. The RSS affiliate Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) will not participate.
