In a collaborative production of Communalism Combat and Newsclick, Teesta Setalvad talked to Rakhi Sehgal of New Trade Union Initiative. On 18th March, in a judgement of the Manesar Maruti violence case, 31 workers have been convicted. 13 workers have been given life imprisonment. The high court did not grant the bail to protect the ‘investors’ concerns.
