Banking service to take a toll in the 2-day Bharat Bandh
Labor unions’ announcement of Bharat Bandh for two days in India is sure to impact some of the most crucial facilities and banking sector is one of them.
The two day nationwide Bharat Band includes a strike by various workers in various sectors including the banking staff. In fact, one of the primary demands of the strike is for the government to stop the privatization of some of the public sector banks.
On Monday, the Central trade unions decided to go ahead with the strike against the government’s one dimensional policies which are affecting farmers, workers and people.
As the protest went in full swing with workers refusing to work, the General Secretary of All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Amarjeet Kaur said that some of the best response is coming from industries based states like Assam, Haryana, Delhi, West Bengal, Telangana, Kerala.
Other than that, she also confirmed that banks and insurance are the sectors which are affected all over the world. Not only banking but oil and steel sectors are also affected all over India. As per a report that was gathered by Kaur earlier in the day, in Odisha, markets are strictly closed. AITUC also stressed that while workers from NMDC have called for a complete strike while Bhilai steel plant employees have also refrained from working at all. Along with them, railways and the defense sector will also see some impact of the nationwide strike
