BANK EMPLOYEES TO STRIKE ON JANUARY 31, FEBRUARY 1

ELABORATE AGITATION PROGRAMME TO PUT PRESSURE ON IBA
Author: C H Venkatachalam - Published 21-01-2020 11:21 GMT-0000
The United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU) has decided to launch non-stop agitation programmes and strike actions to force the Indian Banks Association (IBA) give up its rigid stand, which has resulted in the long-pending demand for a fair wage revision settlement. The bank employees all over the country feel they have been neglected and given a rough deal whereas the RSS-controlled BJP government never thought twice before granting huge concessions to corporate India, including a heavy cut in the corporate tax. The latter move suits the Modi government’s rightwing understanding and commitment to demolish everything that is state-owned or public-owned.

TWO CASES THAT TEST THE CORE OF FEDERALISM OF CONSTITUTION

CRUCIAL SUPREME COURT DECISION COMING UP
Author: Amritananda Chakravorty - Published 21-01-2020 09:58 GMT-0000
The protests against the draconian trio of CAA-NRC-NPR continue in India, while the Judiciary waits for the ‘violence to stop’, before making any meaningful intervention. In contrast, several state governments have voiced their strong disagreements on the principle behind and implementation of these laws; out of these, Kerala and West Bengal stand out as the fiercest critics, with both the Chief Ministers, P. Vijayan and Mamata Banerjee, having directed to stop the work on the NPR (‘National Population Register’) in their respective states. The growing opposition of the state governments to the fascist policies of the Central Government led by the duo, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Home Minister Amit Shah, is a clear indication of severe strain on the federal structure of India, and the Indian Constitution.
