Nagpur: The Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) has
given a nationwide industrial strike call on February 28, a
day before the presentation of Union Budget protesting the
neglect of working population in the country.
The strike will affect public sector banks, ports and
docks, railways, insurance, road transport, energy, mines and
aviation sector, Vice-President of BMS Vinayak Joshi said
in a statement, here today.
The economic policies pursued by the central government are
against the interests of the nation. Liberlisation policy has
increased number of unemployed in the country and laws of
minimum wages are violated in several sectors. Social security
schemes are either minimised or denied, the BMS release said.
Also, employments on contract basis, disinvestments and
outsourcing are pushing organised workers into unorganised
sector and about 42 crore workers are being denied job
guarantee, service conditions and social security, Joshi said
in the release.
