Government Faces General Strike By Signing ETCA, JVP Warns

National Trade Union Centre Chairman and JVP Politburo Member K.D. Lal Kantha said that the government will have to face a massive general strike if it signs the Economic and Trade Cooperation Agreement with India.

Speaking at a press conference today, Lal Kantha said that the government was wrong in hitting out at the GMOA and other professional bodies for their opposition on ETCA.

If the government decides to sign the agreement without heeding to the opposition of these organizations, it will alienate the professionals in the country and will have to face a massive strike.

The JVP also reiterated its opposition regarding the proposed ETCA with India.
