The Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh will hold a 'maha rally' against price rise, prevailing corruption, black money in foreign banks and anti-labour policies of the Union goverment at the Parliament on November 23.
More than two lakh workers from 31 states will participate in the maha-rally, All India secretary, BMS, SK Rathore said in Indore on Saturday.
Living life of 52 crore unorganised labourers deteriorated due to corruption and price rise, and the gap between rich and poor has increased very shaprly due to government policies in last 20 years, he alleged.
Due to FDI in retail sector, more than 7 crore retail traders will become unemployed in the country, he apprehended.
Rathore further blamed that the central government was not implementing labour laws under pressures of industrialists.
Trade union rights were not even available in new generation private sector banks like ICICI, HDFC, Axis Bank, he said.
BMS would put up a charter of demands that included an action to contain corruption, reduce price rise of essential commodities and petro products, implementation of labour laws with better conditions and 200 days work to daily workers at Maha NREGA, he said.
