Banking and public transportation services were disrupted in West Bengal and Kerala on Monday as thousands of workers began a two-day nationwide strike against various government policies. While essential services were mostly unaffected, banking services in various parts of the country were affected, and there were reports of workers staging protests in several states.
Although electricity and fuel supplies were not disrupted, unions claimed the agitation had an impact in coal mining belts in Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh. A joint forum of central trade unions has called for a nationwide strike on March 28 and 29 to protest government policies affecting workers, farmers, and the general public. Their demands include the abolition of labour codes, the abolition of all forms of privatisation, the abolition of the National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP), increased wage allocations under MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act), and the regularisation of contract workers.
