"As a part of “Sarkar Jagao Saptah”, BMS activists will contact grassroots level workers/employees of each sector and educate them about the central as well as state governments’ latest policies and their severe impact on labour," the union said in a statement.
"It will also expose the anti-workers ordinances brought by 4 state governments and increasing of working hours from 8 to 12 hours by 12 state governments," it added.

3. July 26- Private Sector
4. July 27-Government Sector
