Trade Unions across the country have called for a 48-hour nationwide bandh (starting from Monday) with the slogan "Save the People, Save the Nation", against the Central Government's "anti-people" policies. The strike notices have been given by unions in sectors including coal, steel, oil, telecom, postal, income tax, copper, banks, and insurance companies among others.
In Greater Hyderabad, the effect of the bandh was not seen on Monday. RTC buses, auto, and cab services have run as usual. However, RTC JAC leaders boycotted their duties and protested. Schools, Colleges, Commercial establishments, and offices have functioned everywhere in the city without any issue. Some AITC, CITUC, IFTU leaders, and their activists along with the trade unions staged protests at some junctions.
Public and Private sector banks have operated as usual and they are going to function similarly on Tuesday as well. Petrol Bunks were also open in all areas. All the opposition parties in the state took up a protest rally from Koti crossroads (from Gandhi Gyan Mandir Park near Women's College) to YMCA crossroads on Monday morning in solidarity with the protesting trade unions.
