Trade Unions in Gurgaon see no hope with the new Government
Where everybody is busy rejoicing the victory of BJP in the elections, there are few who have no reason to celebrate. Since BJP is known to be pro-business, hence a lot of people believed that as soon as they would gain power in the Centre, they would take charge of the labour force policies. However, no such move is evident.
Trade Unions in Gurgaon claim that the new BJP government has as yet kept mum on labour policy reforms which have been long overdue in the country.

Satvir Singh, secretary of the Centre of Indian Trade Union's district committee told Times Of India, ''The fact that they haven't got anyone to head the labour ministry sends across a bad signal. This means this government aims to carry forward the anti-labour policies of the previous one. The government should also think seriously about implementing the existing labour laws, if not revising them for the benefit of the workers.''

Anil Kumar, a member of the All India Trade Union Congress said that there are no signs as yet that the current government will take up labour welfare issues any more fervently than the Congress leadership did. He also said. “I don't believe that the BJP government will be of any help to the labour community. Not once have any of their senior leaders spoken of workers' welfare or the need to reform the existing labour laws.”

Some say that BJP's grand vision of 10 per cent GDP growth has made the party forget about one crucial aspect of the economy i.e. the labour force. The BJP leadership, however, at the Centre has projected itselfas being a pro-business and industry- friendly.''
