GOVT. EMPLOYEES STRIKE

13 lakhs Employees unitedly demand the Central Government to

“WORKERS ARE NOT BEGGARS”
 
JAWAHARLAL NEHRU ON 1946 P&T STRIKE

“We have a very big gap between the cost of living and wages, and it is that gap which causes hunger and distress and ultimately strike. The point is that all over India there is that gap today and unless that gap is bridged, there will be industrial troubles. These can be bridged either by lowering the prices or by raising the wages. I see today vast fortunes accumulated in the hands of a few. On the other hand, the vast number of people are being faced with a heavy burden of prices. How are we to meet this question of strike? It is not possible or desirable to use the powers of the state (Govt.) against the strike”.


(Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru -Address to the Associated chamber of India in Kolkata on 12-12-1946).
