Blackmailing the government through strike has become a common phenomena and nobody lagging in this race. Hospital, airport, transport, banking- we have already seen how people suffer in several instances. Sometimes I wonder what difference these blackmailers have with those who hijack a plane and threat the government to bomb it for non-fulfillment of their demands. Especially strike by the government employees is like a dirty joke owing to their high pay scale and poor work culture. These things are to be taken with very strict hand and offenders must be punished as per with the traitors. In a democracy everyone has the Right to protest but that must not be going against national interest. I remember how Jayalalita once brought back government employees to work who were in strike in Tamil Nadu by threatening to impose ESMA.
