The 48-hour nationwide strike called by different trade unions entered the second-day, disrupting normal life across Odisha on Wednesday.

Trade unions are protesting alleged 
anti-labour policies of the Central government.

The strike mostly affected vehicular movement at several places as the agitators resorted to road and rail blockades.

They obstructed train services in Bhubaneswar, Balasore, Berhampur, Cuttack and many other places in the state.

The agitators were seen picketing in Bhubaneswar. However, many vehicles were plying without any hassles in the capital city.

The protesters also staged picketing at various public sector undertakings and offices.

Schools, colleges and universities in several districts remained closed in view of the strike. 

"Our strike has been successful on its second day. We are protesting the 
anti-labour policies of Narendra Modi government and the people are supporting our cause," said Sauribandhu Kar, state General Secretary of All India Trade Union Congress.

The trade unions are protesting for the 
fulfilment of a 12-point charter of demands including inflation control, minimum wages, social security schemes, stalling privatisation of government enterprises, discontinuation of foreign investments in railways, banks and insurance sectors and jobs for unemployed youths among others.
