Bengaluru Violence Over New Provident Fund Rules

Thousands of garment workers in Bengaluru clashed with the police and set buses and cars on fire today, angry with the government over a controversial new rule for provident funds, which has now been withdrawn. Workers threw stones at a police station and burnt several police vehicles as the protests – not led by any union – spiraled out of control. The protesters also blocked traffic on the highway, causing five-hour jams in the IT city.
