Left parties and their affiliated trade unions will intensify pressure on the government,inside and outside Parliament,to seek reinstatement of 500 Maruti Suzuki workers sacked in connection with the violence at its Manesar plant.

The pressure tactics may include a demand by the Left parties for adjournment of Parliament’s regular business to take up the issue. The trade unions may also approach the courts challenging the Maruti Suzuki India (MSI)’s decision to terminate 500 permanent workers.

Major central trade unions,including CPI-affiliated All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) and CPM-affiliated Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU),will meet on August 21 to finalise a rally in Delhi to press for their demands.

“We do not expect any positive response from the Haryana government. We are planning to take it to the national level and pressurise the central government. The Left parties,along with other like minded parties,will press for an adjournment in Parliament,” AITUC National Secretary D L Sachdev told PTI. MSI,he said,cannot take such a major decision without consulting the state government.

Last week,CPM Rajya Sabha Member Tapan Kumar Sen had raised the issue in the House terming removal of workers “vindictive and retaliatory”. JMM MP Sanjiv Kumar had demanded a CBI probe into the violence.

Workers from different factories in Gurgaon-Manesar industrial belt,along with central trade unions,had held a rally in Gurgaon on Friday and submitted a memorandum to Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda seeking reinstatement of the MSI workers.

“We are also planning a rally in Delhi and a march to Parliament. We will bring in all workers from nearby areas and do it on a suitable day,which will be decided at the central trade union’s joint meeting on August 21,” Sachdev said.
