Dr Farooq, Sheikh Nazir advocate labour rights
Srinagar, Apr 30: Advocating restoration of labour rights, National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah on Monday said that the Labour class should be given all such rights which would help to uplift them not only economically but also collectively.
According to the party spokesman, the NC president Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that ‘May Day’ gives them an opportunity to remind the government that constitutionally they are protected and their rights be implemented.
The President NC said that even though the labourers have all along been working under tremendous difficult situations it is sad that they have not been rewarded and continue to draw very minimum wages. He said, the labour class has been contributing in the overall development of the county and we should appreciate their efforts. He added that everyone should realize their contribution in restoring all such rights for their safe future.
Dr. Farooq Abdullah said that NC leadership has great respect and admiration for the labour class as they played an important role in the movement started by NC leadership against the then rulers.
“The movement against the tyrant rulers was actually started by labourers of ‘Reshim Khan’ , Silk factory, zaldagar and artisans from Srinagar who supported Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah in difficult times and supported his programs against the oppression of the oppressor” he said.
Meanwhile, National Conference (NC) General Secretary Advocate Sheikh Nazir Ahmad has also expressed his total support with the labour class with the hope that both state and central governments would work to restore the rights.
The General Secretary said that the May Day is being observed on May 1st all over the world with the objective that their rights would be restored so that the widening gap between different classes of the society gets reduced.
Sheikh Nazir also said the party supports the movement of labour class and demands that their rights should be restored without any further delay.
