New Delhi, January 9

The two-day strike by Central trade unions evoked mixed response across the country today, as it entered its second day, with banking and transport services being affected partially and few incidents of violence seen in West Bengal.

As many as 10 central trade unions, except Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, are protesting against the government’s alleged anti-labour policies and unilateral labour reforms. They had given a call for a two-day strike.

Hind Mazdoor Sabha general secretary Harbhajan Singh Sidhu said there was 100% strike in Assam, Odisha, Manipur, Meghalaya, Maharashtra and Goa.

“We got response in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan as well,” he added. — PTI
