Leaders of various trade unions took out a rally in the city on Tuesday opposing the ‘anti-workers policies’ being implemented by the Central and the State governments.

Following the two-day nationwide call given by 10 central trade unions, workers of medical and health, auto unions, private and unorganised sectors participated in the bandh.

The 48-hour bandh was partial and peaceful on the first day.
