The government effort to dissuade trade unions including the INTUC from the first-ever two-day national strike planned for February 20 and 21 failed to make any headway.
On Wednesday, Labour Minister Mallukarjun Kharge met representatives of 11 central trade unions and urged them not inconvenience people. He also explained the various steps being taken by the government to address the workers' issues. But the attempt did not have any impact on the trade unions. "There is no question of withdrawing the strike," CITU general secretary Tapan Sen said.
