Brinda Karat added : "Good behaviour is subjective… When somebody is convicted, unless he is proved to be not guilty, but he is proven guilty.

Why would lakhs of women workers be on the streets lifting luggage holding babies in their arms?" External link

They did not give notice to state governments and didn't even hear them out. They just went by what Centre was saying," External link
