Bengaluru, Sept 1: Another bandh will hit India on Wednesday, Sept 2. This time the nation-wide bandh will be observed against NDA government's proposed Bills amending labour laws, the Contract Act, the Electricity Act and Factory Act.
This would be the first nation-wide bandh which will be observed against Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre. The coordination committee of 11 central trade unions earlier in July had announced that workers would observe bandh on Sept 2.
Protesting against BJP-led NDA government's proposed amendments, the coordination committee had put forward 10-point demands to the Central Government.
The trade unions also claimed that Modi government has been trying to violating labour laws.
Dr Kashmir Thakur, who is the state coordinator for the national coordinating committee of 11 central trade unions, was quoted as saying, "These amendments are aimed at mortgaging the interests of the working class in the hands of profit-making players and hence all trade unions opposed these Bills being brought in the monsoon session of Parliament."
