HYDERABAD STORM COULD HIT LABOUR RE­FORM LEG­IS­LA­TIONS

The NDA govern­ment’s plan to push through cru­cial labour re­forms leg­is­la­tions in the bud­get ses­sion of Par­lia­ment is likely to hit a road­block with dag­gers drawn be­tween the rul­ing al­liance and op­po­si­tion par­ties over the sui­cide of a Dalit scholar. With the am­bi­tious land re­forms and GST bills struck in Par­lia­ment due to con­tin­ued stonewalling by the Congress-led op­po­si­tion, the fresh cri­sis could se­ri­ously dent the govern­ment’s ef­forts to in­tro­duce rules for ease of do­ing busi­ness. Union labour min­is­ter Ban­daru Dat­ta­treya is at the cen­tre of the storm with op­po­si­tion par­ties de­mand­ing his sack­ing for his al­leged in­ter­fer­ence in the Univer­sity of Hyderabad’s affairs, which they say drove Ro­hith Ve­malu to sui­cide.
