Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) will observe ‘Sarkar Jagao Saptah’ (Wake Up Government) from July 24-30 to raise workers’ issues at state and national level across sectors and industries.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)-affiliated trade union plans to hold protests and demonstrations across the country against “five burning issues”: Problems of unorganised sector workers particularly migrant workers, non-payment of wages, huge job losses, suspension of labour laws and increase in working hours in many states and privatisation of public sector undertakings (PSUs), it said in a statement on Wednesday.
