250 million workers joined the All-India General Strike, making it the largest in human history, with protests occurring all over the country. Over 300 groups, including the communist parties of India, aided the organization of the strike.
Protests were also held across Jammu and Kashmir, which has been under a virtual government-imposed lockdown for over a year and repressive government policies have made mobilizing extremely difficult.
Prior to the strike, a protest had also occurred to rally up the people of Kochbihar district in West Bengal.
