This will be yet another instance where the BMS will stop short of staging a public protest over labour reforms and disinvestment, even though its 10-point charter of demands before the central government is similar to that of other trade unions. It appears the government is also working to create a divide in the alliance of trade unions by handpicking BMS for a “private” dialogue with finance minister Arun Jaitley and the ministries of law and personnel, among others.
