Banerjee opposes Bank Strike

Millions of workers in India stayed away from work on Monday to protest against rising prices, job losses and state asset sales, forcing banks to shut offices in some cities and airlines to cancel flights.

Mamata Banerjee has opposed the strike. The Left Front is supporting the strike called by the trade unions but have urged people to keep it peaceful. BJP-affiliate Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), however, has kept itself away from the strike call. Today's strike comes just two months after the BJP brought the country to a stand-still in July with its Bharat bandh call against escalating prices.

IMO: CPI(Marxist) seems to be the 'unacceptable face of marxism' which really seems to have done nothing for most people and has already caused much anger and suffering. Time will tell, but Trinamool Congress yet again seems to have taken the correct course.
