Bharat Bandh LIVE: West Bengal, Kerala, UP worst hit as trade unions go on strike

The Left-affiliated central trade unions began their nationwide strike to protest against ‘anti-labour policies’ of the government. Essential services, including transport and banking, are likely to be hit in several states as central trade unions have rejected the government’s appeal and decided to enforce a strike on Friday.

RSS-affiliated Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), however, has decided not to join the strike as it believes that the government has accepted its demands.

The strike has been called by central trade unions such as Congress’s INTUC, and Left’s CITU and AITUC. Essential services such as banking, public transport and telecom will be hit. Commuters will have a tough time as many autorickshaw unions in big cities such as Delhi, Bengaluru and Hyderabad have decided to keep off the roads on Friday. Chakka jam has been planned in 11 states including Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.
