CBCNN hails CITU strike

A matter of shame is reported so nonchalantly by Chindu. The concerns of people who have been affected by the strike or the opposition to the bandh call are white-washed in the typical communist "freedom of expression".

The response to the bandh is beyond expectations in Waste Bengal. Although bandh is the norm in the industrial paradise, CBCNN eulogizes  Buddhadeb for transforming  Waste Bengal.

The Hindu : National : Response beyond expectations: CITU
The CITU leader claimed that road-blocks, stopping of trains and closure of agricultural mandis and 20 Food Corporation of India godowns were the highlight of the strike but equally notable was the participation by workers in brick-kilns, beedi-makers, head-load workers, private transporters, those employed in the small textile units and toddy-tappers.

Unorganised workers in industries such as Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers, HPCL, South Eastern Coalfields, Western Coalfields and other units also participated, Mr. Pandhe said. In Delhi, there was a good response to the strike call among beedi-workers, rickshaw-pullers, contract workers, and street vendors. Demonstrations were held at Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi Railway Station, and industrial areas.
