…… to counter the increasing discontent with joblessness and price rise, and the Indian government’s inability to deal with them
The last two years have seen a further deterioration of the living standards of working people in India due to the pandemic and the lack of enough policy interventions by the Modi government.
Despite police repression and the COVID-19 pandemic, workers and farmers and their allies across India participated in the pan-India strike action against the recent neoliberal reforms pushed through by the Narendra Modi government
The call for this massive countrywide action has been given by 10 central trade unions and dozens of independent federations. Simultaneously, an umbrella platform of over 300 farmers’ organizations has called for a two-day protest
Trade unions said the working class in Kashmir, both domestic and migrant, was paid better minimum wages in comparison to many other States. They also said the step by the Indian government would lead to regressive labor laws being implemented in Kashmir
