MARCH TO PARLIAMENT
Major trade unions to hold march to Parliament on Feb 23
Major trade unions barring BJP-affiliate BMS today decided to hold a march to Parliament ahead of the Budget session next year to protest Government’s “inaction” in checking price rise, violation of labour laws and disinvestment of profitable PSUs.
The march would be organised on February 23 next year.
At a meeting chaired by INTUC president G Sanjeeva Reddy, top trade union leaders decided to “further intensify their movement” as the Government had not taken “any steps to resolve the demands of the people and workers,” AITUC general secretary Gurudas Dasgupta told PTI.
He said the meeting congratulated the working class for the “historic” general strike on September 7 to press for Government action in arresting inflation, disinvestment of PSUs and to check violation of labour laws.
