    THIS IS DICTATORIAL RULING BY NANDASENA

    Service is essential but the strategic assets itself is dispensable for a kick back from Adani! What kind of criminal thinking is this?

    The red tread has bit a blank wall?

    Good move Mr President, never give in to those rowdy trade union goons like previous governments did, It will only push the country backwards.

    Very good. Let the law makers make the decisions and rule the country. Not the trade unions.

    Alex Sunday, 31 January 2021 12:13 PM

    I'm unable to positively state that this move is incorrect due to lots of speculation, BUT Shud you not be taking action against your own Alliance Partners for supporting the Trade Union stance... ??? Aren't they also adding muscle to the Trade Unions??

    Who cares about these Gazettes? Believe me nothing will happen and the strike and go slow will go on....

    Prof Jey R Sunday, 31 January 2021 05:20 PM

    Good Job.. don't let News Channels or Trade Unions to rule the National... People have voted for President so he can take strong decisions..

    Very soon all state services will become essential services. Beginning of the end of democracy in the country. Only save us.
