Protest against frequent strikes

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: Representatives of various chambers of commerce and industries decried the frequent hartals and general strikes that are hampering the commercial and industrial developments of the State.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, office-bearers of the Kerala Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Cochin Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Confederation of Indian Industries, Kerala, requested the Government to take stringent action against those who call hartals and strikes.

These protests would only lead to entrepreneurs becoming wary of investing in the State.

The office-bearers said they were not ready for a debate on the logic and justice behind a group of people protesting against a certain issue, but that they were only criticising the mode of protest.

Even though the Kerala High Court had issued a judgement against calling for bandhs, the hartals in turn have come to have the effect of bandhs, they pointed out. C.P.Jain, president, Kerala Chamber of Commerce and Industry; A.K.Nair, president, Cochin Chamber of Commerce and Industry; K.S. Sabu, president, Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Navas Meeran, vice-chairman, Confederation of Indian Industries (Kerala) were present at the press conference.
