Millions of India's workers walked off their jobs in a two-day nationwide strike called by trade unions to protest at the 'anti-labour' policies of the embattled government. Financial services and transport were hit by the strike called by 11 major workers' groups to protest at a series of pro-market economic reforms announced by the government last year, as well as high inflation and rising fuel prices.
