The All India Federation of Nationalized Bank Officers (AINBF) has stated that it will take part in the All India Bank Officers’ Strike on March 15 and 16 to express its opposition to the Central Government’s policy of privatization of banks.
Speaking to reporters in Erode, the federation functionaries said banking services would be affected by the Centre’s privatization policy, which would make it difficult for ordinary people to get agricultural, business, education and home loans and benefits under the 100-day MGNREGS employment programme.
The service-oriented banks will become a revenue-generating sector for corporates.
So, all nationalized bank officials would go on strike for two days they said and sought the public support to the stir.
They blamed the Central policies and actions for weakening of PSUs, saying it was not right to allow private investment in them.
