India strikes as frustration mounts toward Modi policies

NEW DELHI -- A historic strike rocked India Wednesday, fueled by resentment of proposed labor reforms and growing impatience with slow progress on economic policies promised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

     Members of 10 unions, including the All India Trade Union Congress, called for the action. The groups claim that more than 150 million workers -- over 10% of India's population -- took part, making for one of the largest strikes in history.
