Left supporters disrupted rail operations in several districts in West Bengal on Monday morning as part of the two-day nationwide (Bharat Bandh) strike called by a joint forum of central trade unions. This has affected rail services. However, there has been some impact on normal life. Airlines are operating normally, and market stalls are open.
There have been clashes between police and bandh supporters in other parts of the state, including Kolkata. On the day of the bandh, trade unionists from the Left demonstrated at the ticket counter of the railway station in Dum Dum. There are also sufficient numbers of government and private buses plying the streets of Kolkata. In West Bengal, the government announced that government offices would remain open and that employees would not be granted leave.
Banking, railways, and electricity services are likely to be affected by central trade union action on Monday and Tuesday. As a result of the protest against Bharat Bandh, trade unions and regional unions argue that government policies that they define as “anti-labor, anti-farmer, and anti-national” are being brought forward.
