08 Oct The major trade unions are bent upon making the plantation sector like k s r t c , a parasite on tax payer. The unionists motto is make the enterprises debtors so that the hold of the unions on the workers will be strong. This happened only among the workers directly with the govt. Pay revision once in five years is a right. The net result of ksrtc and govt workers is the govt borrowing monthly to the tune of 1000-2000 crores from the open market. Keep I mind the fact that it was a big stick beat govt by the lefts . Now no one talks about it. Bottom line is the plantation strike will create a huge no of workers and voters to the parties, yet at the cost of the health of the bussiness. Very funny attitude. And the leadership need to get a course in 101 economics. All are learning to become legendary kalidasa.
