Impose a fine on the Left parties for the strike
On Thursday, September 29th, a strike was called by trade unions allied to the 'Crazy Commies'. It paralyzed life across the country, with banking and air traffic hurt the most. The strike was against the government's economic policies, amendments to labour laws and privatization. In addition, autorickshaws in Karnataka were off the road, protesting against the govermnent's unwillingness to increase the subsidy towards the conversion of autorickshaws to using LPG cylinders rather than petrol/diesel.
The strike today, called by trade unions, undoubtedly incited and encouraged by the Left parties, has resulted in crores of rupees worth of losses to the Indian economy in terms of banking transactions, people being unable to get to work or appointments on time, either because flights were cancelled or because other transport unions also joined in.
The newspaper did publish the letter, which you can find in the fifth entry in yesterday's edition. There was some snipping out, as the contents indicate:
The strike has resulted in losses that run into crores in terms of banking transactions, people being unable to get to work on time either because flights were cancelled or because other transport unions joined in the strike. It is time the UPA Government snapped ties with the Left because it cannot continue to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. I hope the Left parties are made to pay up as the BJP and the Shiv Sena were for the losses caused during the Mumbai bandh in 2003.
