Bharat Bandh on 2 September by Central Trade Unions

 Another general strike or bandh is knocking at the door. The central trade unions have called a countrywide general strike on 2 September, Friday to protest the "anti-people, anti-national and anti-worker" policies of the NDA government at the Centre. AITUC and CITU have jointly called the general strike.

Bandh agendas - reason for the 2 September bandh

There are 12-point charter of demands that include:

1. A minimum wage of Rs. 18,000 per month in the unorganised sector

2. "Mass-scale privatisation of permanent and perennial works"

3. "Onslaught on basic rights of the workers through the so-called labour law reforms" 

4. Compulsory registration of trade unions within a period of 45 days from the date of submitting application

5. Immediate rectification of International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions C-87 and C-98.

And other 7 points.

Bandh or general strike is an useless weapon for protest and it has been proved but political parties still call bandh to paralyse normal life of common people. A bandh means a huge financial loss but in India, bandh is called by all political parties to show their strength and to motivate their party members.

2nd September is Friday so for Government employees, a successful bandh will result in 3 consecutive holidays. 

2 September Bandh and Bengal

Bengal CM mamata Banerjee has taken strict measures to keep the state out of bandh on 2nd September. State government employees will have to be present on the bandh day as well as on 1st September and 5th September.

Latest Updates: As on 30 August, unions refuse to call off strike.
