2. STOP BANKING SECTOR REFORMS :
Banks in India today have nearly Rs.75 Lacs crores as Deposits representing the hard earned savings of the people of our country. Hence banking institutions have to be properly regulated. It is because of these defined regulations and predominantly being under public sector, that our Banking system was saved from the global crisis. Because of de-regulation and liberal banking policies, many Banks in many countries including in USA and Europe have collapsed. Indian banks were saved because of our strong regulations and being in public sector.
HENCE, OUR DEMAND TO STOP THE ABOVE MENTIONED BANKING REFORMS.
