(Updates) How Bharat Bandh unfolds in South India

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Bengaluru, Sept 2: The 'bandh' call by the All India Trade Union against the "anti-worker" changes that the government has brought in its labour laws has reverberated across India. Schools, colleges and transport are hit, but emergency facilities continue to provide services in each state at the behest of the state and the central governments.

Citing absolute apathy of the government toward their demand for better wages, close to 10 central trade unions unite to go on a one-day strike.
