Mundane life of Kolkata comes to a halt owing to all India strike

By Sreyashi Mazumdar and Arnab Mitra

The all India strike has taken a toll on the city of Joy, Kolkata. Railway disruptions, empty roads and closed shops have juddered the day to day activities of the city.



Railways got disrupted in Shealdah and Howrah division. 

“The workers are suffering owing to the anarchic policies of both Narendra Modi and Mamata Banerjee. The state government is trying to malign our movement and charging at us with the help of hooligans and police,” Prabir Chowdhury, a CITU central working committee member told NewsGram.

“The strike till now has been successful and people are supporting us,” he added.

 The state government recently in a regulation said that it will be penalizing the bus drivers and conductors for any form of misnomer (bus accidents) and will be sent behind the bars for a minimum period of three to seven years.

“The drivers protesting the state government are demanding  the occlusion of certain policies which have turned out to be an impediment for their appointments”, said former MP Anadi Kumar Sahoo

Owing to the furor over the Uber cab discrepancies, the state government has now demanded that the drivers should have studied till class eight at least and should have a good command over English; therefore, a lot of the drivers are failing to get themselves a proper job.

Prominent CPI(M) leader Biman Bose said, ” From Behrampore to Sonarpur TMC in collaboration with the state government has been trying to unleash havoc. Besides that, our zonal committee secretary of Behrampore Ganesh Sarkar and former MP Mainul Hasan were attacked by the TMC goons.”


Further, there was a tussle between the police and protesters at the SUCI rally at Hazra and Esplanade.
