Tamil Nadu bus strike continues for fourth day; commuters left stranded

Tamil Nadu bus strike continues for fourth day; commuters left stranded

Normal life in Tamil Nadu would continue to remain affected with the transport workers unions on Friday announcing their decision to continue their indefinite strike until their demands are met rejecting the Madras High Court direction and Tamil Nadu government's appeal to call off strike. "We are not going to withdraw the strike till our problems end".

On Saturday, he warned the striking employees of the State transport corporations of stern action if they failed to return to work immediately. "Recourse to lighting strikes or flash strikes without notice leads to the consequences of denying the citizens of their right to free movement and is clearly illegal and against the public interest", the judge said while passing interim orders on a PIL filed in this regard. Temporary bus drivers and conductors are also deployed in order to release tension among the commuters over the strike. "We will move the court on Monday", said CITU state general secretary A. Soundararajan.

Taking a serious view of the strike called by certain unions, it said the workers should get back to work or "face consequences", including termination and contempt of court.

He also said they have not received any communication from the court about ending their strike.
