Millions of workers across India went on strike today in protest against Narendra Modi's economic policies, the biggest show of strength by trade unions since the right-wing Prime Minister took office.

All India Trade Union Congress secretary said the response had been "magnificent" and estimated over 150 million workers participated in the strike, although this could not be independently confirmed.
