Gnanasundari of All India Bank Officers’ Association and Senthil Arumugam of Bank Employees Federation of India, who addressed the protesters, said the unprecedented inflation, loss of several lakhs of jobs, sharp fall in gross domestic product, unemployment and other anti-people policies were driving the nation towards disastrous situation.
