Strike to cripple normal life in Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 19, 2013: The two-day nationwide strike called by Central trade unions from tomorrow is likely to cripple normal life across Kerala with workers from varied sectors including transport and banking joining the protest against the Centre’s economic and labour policies.

The state government has declared ‘dies non’ (no work, no pay) as pro-Left service and teachers unions are also striking work.
