Ten central trade unions (CTUs), excluding the largest Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, have called for a two-day country-wide general strike from February 23 to protest against “the Centre’s anti-people and anti-worker” policies. “The main slogan of the strike will be ‘Save the people and the save the nation,” the CTUs said in a joint statement issued Monday.

Among the 12-point demands, they want scrapping of the labour codes and the essential defence services Act. They also want the Centre to accept the six-point charter of demands, post repeal of farm laws, of the Samyukta Kisan Morcha. They want scrapping of the national monetisation pipeline and are against privatisation.
