Strike against Govt's labour policy hits life in Kerala
Thiruvananthapuram: The general strike called by various trade unions demanding rollback of a central government order allowing fixed-term employment across all sectors, affected normal life in the state on Monday.
Most of the shops and business establishments remained shut.
The commuters faced problems as public transports including the state-owned KSRTC and private bus operators, besides taxis and auto-rickshaws stayed off road.
The people who arrived at different railway stations across the state had a difficult time in undertaking their onward journey.
The police, however, had made arrangements at some places to help tranded passengers.
