New Delhi: Several central trade unions, in a protest against the Central government’s policies affecting bank employees, have called for a nationwide ‘Bharat Band’ on Monday and Tuesday, i.e. March 28 and 29.

All India Bank Employees Association informed on a social media post that a joint forum of the banking sector will be joining the strike.

The two-day all-India strike across the country was called on by the joint forum after a meeting of the platform on March 22. The unions said that the strike is being held to register their protest against the “anti-worker, anti-farmer, anti-people and anti-national policies” of the current government.

The bank unions are reportedly irate over the Banking Laws Amendment Bill 2021 and the central government’s plan to privatize public sector banks.
