October 22, 2019

Mysuru:  Banking services was partially hit in city this morning as employees of some Public Sector Banks and as well as a few Private Sector Banks went on a protest following an All India Bank strike called by some Bank Unions.

Over 500 employees of Public Sector Banks — Canara Bank, Corporation Bank, Syndicate Bank and Dena Bank, supported by staff of Private Sector Banks such as Karnataka Bank, Kotak Mahindra, Catholic Syrian and Federal Banks, under the banner of All India Bank Employees’ Association and the Bank Employees Federation of India, gathered at the Corporation Bank’s Regional Office on Vinoba Road and staged a demonstration against the merger of Banks, which they claimed was detrimental to the Banking industry.

Raising slogans against the Union Government, the employees urged the Government to stop reforms, step up recovery of bad loans and to take stringent action against defaulters. 

They also demanded that customers must not be ‘harassed’ with penal charges and that service charges must not be hiked. This apart, they also sought a hike in interest rate on deposits.

However services in other Public Sector Banks such as SBI and Vijaya Bank remained unaffected as the employees did not join the strike.

Mysuru District Bank Employees Association Secretary H. Balakrishna, other Office-bearers Subbanna, Padmanabha Nayaka, Putturam, Chandrika, Ragini and others took part.

    The same people voted to the great economist Modi, expecting “ache din” “sab ka saat sab ka vikas sab ka vishawas” so why are they crying and protesting now, let all of us enjoy ache din. And do some “swach bharat” “Yoga day” “fit India” in our New India where banks are unsafe to deposit money and you will be directed by government what to eat what to wear where to go !!
    Elections are coming !! campaign strategy
    When elections are coming attack pakistan with in low intensity where it will not provoke pakistan and you will prove your nationalism using same bofors, MIG’s which is bought by congress govt for national security and but still they have not done anything is past 60 years, yet won 2 wars against same pakistan.
    when we closely analyse with figures is looks like congress built nation and BJP is eager to demolish nation to retain power.
    NOTE for BHAKTS: I am nor pro congress nor Pro BJP, I am a citizen

    @citizen You are so accrate in our assessment . We never had poverty or unemployment or even corruption before 2014! All the news about lakhs of crores of scams, black money and crimes were just the propaganda in the election . There were no svams at all! In fact demonitization and GST were the biggest scams of the modern India! As Rahul pointed out All scamsters have Modi as their last name and Namo is the king of all Media and CBI are the parrots who even fabricated the rumor tgat 4.5 million Kasmiri pandit s were exterminated or evacuated! No proof of that either nor 8500 Sikhs were killed by Congress! These are white lies modi used for winning! Just see the most honest man likeDKShi and Chindambaram are sent to jail for vendetta politics! StathyamevaJayate, D.k.shi for bail and Chidambaram too! People are watching! Very soon Congress will be back and immediate priority is to do REmonetization , revers6 triple Talaq, restore article 370 and restore good real tion with Pakistan may be Mani shanker iyer may help us a lot!

    True samir, and most honest man is now CM along with Blue film hero as DCM !! How do you justify this ??
    Demonetization is utter flop shop which killed common people and brought economy to stand still, after effect are still going on..
    20 million people were lifted from BPL in last decade, you should know figures, don’t be a andh bhakt.
    So Chidhambaram did take bribe of 11 lakhs, 13 accused are there in this case, 11 lakh divided by 13 accused, so 84,000K INR, being a cabinet minister from 4 decades he doesn’t have 84,000. Read his family background post independence.
    Why central govt took 1.5 lakh cr from Reverse ?? how do you justify ??
    If sab changa hai, why protesting then, enjoy it.
