After the PM’s announcement that the controversial farm laws will be repealed, central trade unions have decided to intensify their protests against the labour laws, national monetisation pipeline (NMP) and disinvestment in public sector companies. The joint committee of 10 central trade unions have also decided to call a two-day strike during the budget session of Parliament in February. The unions have supported the Samyukt Kisan Morcha’s agitation against the farm laws and, on different occasions, tried to forge a worker-peasant unity for a common cause.
