Two-day strike call to give a strong message: Yechury



Kolkata: Extending support to the two-day strike call given by all central trade unions of the country, CPI(M) Politburo member Sitaram Yechury on Monday said the strike will sent out a strong message against the anti-people policies of the Centre.

"Earlier also we had given a one-day strike call against the policies of the Centre. But that strike call didn't send a strong message to them," Yechury said.

"So now a two-day strike call has been given to deliver a stronger message," Yechury said on the sidelines of a programme here.

Trade unions CITU, INTUC, AITUC, BMS and Left-backed banking sector unions have jointly called the country-wide general strike opposing financial sector reforms and allowing FDI in retail on February 20 and 21.
