Guwahati: As many as 10 central trade unions have called for a nationwide general strike on Thursday (November 26).

Around 25 crore workers are expected to participate in this nationwide bandh.

The trade union's strike is in protest against the centre's policies, such as privatisation of public sector units and new labour and farm laws.

The organisations that have called for the bandh are- Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC), All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Hind Mazdoor Sabha (HMS), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), All India United Trade Union Centre (AIUTUC), Trade Union Co-ordination Centre (TUCC), Self-Employed Women's Association (SEWA), All India Central Council of Trade Unions (AICCTU), Labour Progressive Federation (LPF), and United Trade Union Congress (UTUC).

The CITU leader of Jorhat unit stated that the bandh has been called in Assam as well. But there would be few relaxations in Guwahati due to the funeral of former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.
