All India General Strike: Workers to protest NDA government policies on January 8-9

A nationwide national strike throughout India has been scheduled on 8-9 January 2019, against the neoliberal, anti-worker policies of the BJP-led NDA government of Narendra Modi. The strike is organized by 10 Central Trade Unions (CTUs) and a number of independent worker's federations. 

“In order to serve the interests of the multinational companies with Indian corporate, the present government is pursuing blatantly anti-people, anti-workers and anti-national policies at the cost of severely damaging the national economy and destroying its indigenous productive and manufacturing capabilities. Such a regime must be defeated squarely to force the pro-people changes in policies on all fronts,” the CTUs said in statement.
