Bharat bandh: Nation braces for country-wide strike on Wednesday

New Delhi: India is bracing for a nationwide strike on Wednesday, called by central trade unions to protest against proposed labour reforms.

Central trade union leaders have refused to withdraw the strike call as their recent meeting with a group of ministers failed to yield any breakthrough.

The union leaders have put before the government a 12-point charter of demands.

Earlier, Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya had said that 7 to 8 of the demands were agreeable to te government.

The September 2 country-wide strike call was given by 11 central trade unions to protest against the proposed changes in various labour laws. But the BJP-backed Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) later pulled out of the proposed nationwide strike.
