  1. What do they want?They always go for strikes for their salary hikes but they don’t want any new chnages to be done in the work.

    That is not free money they are getting and it’s people money. There are many govt banks which are in losses and not in a good shape. So there is no point in continuing as a single entity and better option would be to combine with other govt bank to make it big.
