In the last few months, we have seen a lot of hartals declared by political parties and organization in this state. These hartals have disrupted the way of life of people of this state. Due to these hartals, basic human rights of the people are getting denied. Apart from this basic human right, the image of our state is getting tarnished by the hartals. While every state is trying to attract main big MNCs, (which they are succeeding) these hartals and its after-effects are drawing away from our state. The traders in our state either big or small are making a huge loss due to this hartal. The people who are working under these traders are losing a day of work which will reduce their salary for a month. The ancillary services part of these industry they would be making a huge loss. So the effect of hartal on the state economy is huge. The most affected people in the hartal days are unorganized workers. These people work everyday for some money to have a good life. If they lose a day of work it may make unrepairable damage to their budget. The hartal has some effect on the education sector also. How many times have exams, interviews get rescheduled due to hartal? how many working days of schools have been lost due to hartal?. But we have to think about the destruction these hartals brings to our society. In the last hartal declared by a political party, there was violence all over the state and its effect is continuing now also. These hartals bring fear to the mind of the people. Hartals destroy the harmony our state have. 

What is the reality of hartals today?

V. Venugopal, the president of Cochin Chamber of Commerce, said that if a hartal is considered ‘100% successful’, it takes away Rs 900 crore from the state’s overall Rs 7.76 lakh crore GDP, which is a huge amount.

Dozens of shops/vehicles get destroyed by hartals.

Exams getting rescheduled from one day to another which is making a life of students hell.

Basic Human right is denied.

Transportation system of state get paralysed.

Never ending violence during a hartal day.

What can we do?

We must ask the govt to pass a legislative bill to declare Hartal illegal. Also must take necessary action against those who declare hartal. This petition is to open the eyes of those who have the power to do so.
