The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) has appealed to the Central trade unions to call off their two-day strike as the economy will take a hit worth Rs. 15,000 crore-Rs. 20,000 crore due to the disruption in business. “The national economy, battling slowdown can ill-afford this situation. In fact, the strike would aggravate the price situation because of disruption in the supply line of essential commodities,” said ASSOCHAM president Rajkumar Dhoot.
