Feb 28 Strike: Money matters but NOT Indian students' future

Bangalore, Feb 28: All exams, which were scheduled to be held on Tuesday, Feb 28, have been postponed by all state governments. While West Bengal government postponed the 10th board exam, Karnataka postponed PU examinations and medical exams. Even JNTU (Hyderabad) and Osmania University postponed the examinations which were scheduled for the day.

All examinations have been postponed as Trade Unions of all major political parties called for a 24-hour Bharat Bandh (strike) demanding a universal social security net for all unorganised sector workers through creation of a national social security fund, enforcement of basic labour laws and stringent punitive action against violation of labour laws.

Auto drivers in Bangalore called for a strike on the same day for increment of minimum fare as well as high fare per kilometer. While one union has asked that auto fares be raised to Rs 20 as minimum from Rs 17 and from Rs 9/km to Rs 10 per km, another union has demanded that the fare be raised to Rs 24 and 12/km.

People, who were trying to commute on Tuesday, faced tremendous harassment as transportation was one among the sectors which have been hit massively by the strike.

Meanwhile, reports claim that the Bharat Bandh, which was believed as one of the biggest strike called by major trade unions at post independent era, evoked mixed reactions.

However, citing the present distressing situation of the country, it seems that no one cares about the future of Indian students, rather they are obsessed with money and other powers alone.
