Shramev Jayate: Interests of Investors, Not Workers

The pronouncements on Shramev Jayate have to be seen linked with the labour law amendments already moved by government of India and by state governments in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Some more proposals have been announced by government of India, which will amend the definition of small industries removing all establishments with 40 workers out of the purview of 14 very important labour laws. In the name of Shramev Jayate, the Modi government is acting in the interests of investors and not workers. It is also condemnable that changes in labour laws and other moves, which affect the workers, are being implemented without even discussions with the trade unions.
