INDIA -- India's major trade unions began a two day strike today.
Financial services, mining and transport are likely to be affected by the strike which was called to protest high inflation, a fuel price hike and what they say are violations of labor laws.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asked the unions to call of the strike but talks with union leaders broke down Monday.
Among those affected by the strike are commuters who were left stranded at bus and train stations.
The strike is expected to cause a huge economic loss for India which is already struggling with its worst economic slowdown in a decade.
