NEW DELHI: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted during his Independence Day speech, the reform push by the Centre, including allowing women to work in the night shift, RSS affiliate — Bhartiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) — accused the government of handing over power of Parliament to higher bureaucracy.

The BMS hit out at the government over “helping out big industries” and claimed that a path is being laid for variations of “Bhopal gas tragedies” in every city of the country. “The government is seeking to carry out changes in the Factories Amendment Bill to help erring big companies. The government is repeatedly bringing many proposals rejected by trade unions.

The Centre is making tripartite consultation a mockery,” the BMS said in a statement, adding that “safety provisions are highly diluted and India will be under risk of increased factory calamities like the Bhopal tragedy in every town”.

Countering the government assertions of doing away with “Inspector Raj”, the BMS alleged that the rights of Parliament are being shifted to the hands of higher bureaucracy.
