NEW DELHI: Ahead of the upcoming Budget session of Parliament, the RSS-affiliated  Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) assailed the Centre for pursuing economic policies that favour the corporates, while neglecting the lower middle class like workers, peasants, villagers and tribals. 

The BMS has sent its strongly worded resolution, which was passed recently, to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  According to the BMS, it would launch a satyagraha from February 26 to press for its demands.  

The letter written by BMS general secretary Virjesh Upadhayay said it wanted the government to immediately convene Indian Labour Conference and “withdraw anti-worker Labour law amendments and stop corporate favouritism.”

The BMS resolution said, “The corridors of power are filled with US-based NRI advisers and ministers loyal to the corporate sector. The vice-chairman of Niti Ayog, economic adviser, RBI Governor etc are examples.”

Further, the BMS castigated the government saying it was for the “first time in the labour history of Independent India” that a  slew of changes had been brought in the labour laws without consulting the trade unions.

Meanwhile, ahead of the talks with the PDP on government formation in Jammu and Kashmir and the trust vote in Bihar, BJP chief Amit Shah on Thursday met RSS leaders including Suresh Bhayyaji Joshi and Krishna Gopal.
