Indian Workers are in the largest strike in the recent past
Around 10 central trade unions, comprising around 150 million employees of banks, public transport units, factories, and government companies, are fighting against the “anti-labour” policies of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. They are protesting against the inflation, unemployment and burden of taxes under Modi government.
Public sector bank workers protested against the government’s decision to merge Dena Bank with Vijaya Bank and Bank of Baroda end of December and they joined with farmers struggle demanding the economic freedom for farmers. The students, youth and left organizations have also joined the struggle expanding the public displeasure on Modi’s policies. Now it is a general strike of working class of India.
This will definitely have an influence for the result of coming general election of the country. But left wing has to be mindful not to give the advantage of this uprising to another capitalist party to continue the same system.
