Differences have come to the fore on the issue of important economic reforms in the Sangh Parivar. The Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS), an organization of the RSS, has announced protests across the country on June 10 against Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s massive announcement of privatization and disinvestment of Public Sector Units (PSUs). The leaders of the Indian trade union are angry that the Modi government has made a big announcement for privatization and disinvestment of government undertakings without talking to the trade unions. Describing this policy of the Modi government against the interests of the workers, he has announced to launch a country-wide movement. The zonal secretary of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh told NDTV, ‘We are going to start protests and picketing across the country from June 10. Modi government is taking anti-labor decisions in the name of reform. This reform package is against the interest of the country. The government wants to kill only the hen laying the golden egg.
According to the information received, the leaders of the Indian trade union have decided that they will start a campaign ‘Save Public Sector, Save India’ against the Modi government in the country. Opposition will start across the country to sell profitable companies. The decision of corporatisation of the Railway and Defense Ordinance Factories Board is wrong. Commercialization of the coal sector is not in the interest of the workers. BMS believes that FDI is wrong in strategic sectors like defense.
Apart from the Indian labor union, 10 major central trade unions of the country have also mobilized and are busy making strategies to surround the government. Situ general secretary Tapan Sen says that the Modi government has waged a war in the country against the workers. He told NDTV that since 2015, the Prime Minister has not even talked to labor organizations. We have decided that 10 central labor organizations will organize a nationwide movement in the first week of July. Overall, it is now decided that the government, which is struggling to handle the falling economy due to Corona crisis and lockdown, is now seen on another front.
