Normal life in Kerala is expected to be affected tomorrow in view of a 24-hour general strike called by various trade unions demanding the rollback of a central government order allowing fixed term employment across sectors.

The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation did not operate any service.

The offices of both the central and state governments witnessed thin attendance.

The emergency services like newspaper, hospitals, medical shops, milk, marriages and flights were exempted from the strike. People who are working in bunk shops, tea shops, hotels and stationery shops are people who have to work every day to eke out a living and payback loans. The police action came after the SDPI activists confronted with the pro-CPI (M) trade union members.

A report from Kozhikode said shops and establishments remained closed in Northern Kerala in protest against the Free Term Employment (FTE) policy of the Centre.

BMS did not take part in the strike.

Those bound for airports were also hit hard as they had to leave home early to reach the respective airports or travel to the airport in private vehicles apprehending possible train delays owing to ongoing track maintenance work on the Shorannur-Mangaluru stretch. No law-and-order incidents in connection with the strike were reported. The transport too will be affected with KSRTC participating.

No untoward incidents were reported from the district during the strike period.

Coimbatore: Major trade unions in nearby Tirupur have expressed solidarity to the April 5 Tamil Nadu Bandh called by all political parties against failure to form the Cauvery Management Board.
