Banking and other businesses across India suffered Wednesday as millions of workers went on strike protesting the Hindu nationalist government's economic policies, especially the planned sale of several state-owned companies including Air India.
The widespread action was in opposition to what unions called the "anti-worker and anti-people policies" of right-wing Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Protesters marched on the streets of New Delhi and several state capitals in response to the strike call given by 10 workers unions. They highlighted the recent privatization of public firms and natural resources and demanded a raise in the minimum wage and pensions.
Farmers and students joined some of the protests called by 10 trade unions who claim 250 million members between them.
