US Shutdown Enters 23rd Day To Become Longest In History, 8 Lakh Workers Miss New Year Salaries

The United States government shutdown, which started on December 21 midnight has entered its 23rd day, making it the longest government shutdown the super power has ever seen.

The shutdown has taken place due to U.S President’s refusal to approve a budget that doesn’t include USD 5 billion for building a wall along the U.S-Mexico border. The current shutdown has even surpassed the previous record- a 21 day shutdown that took place under Bill Clinton in 1995-1996.
