The 24-hour, nationwide strike by 10 trade unions to protest against changes in labour laws and privatisation of PSUs crippled life in many parts of the country on Wednesday.

More than 15 crore workers of the participating unions belong to the banking, manufacturing, construction and coal mining sectors. They are demanding implementation of their 12-point charter of demands. BJP-backed BMS and NFITU have, however, stayed away from the strike.
