LABOUR BODY STAGES DHARNA FOR WORKERS’ WELFARE
Monday, 23 December 2013 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The members of whopping 32 organisations under the banner Pashimanchal Milita Shramik Karmachari Manch on Saturday staged a sit-in in front of the Collectorate here to press for their 22-point charter of demands including strictly implementation of existing provisions for the welfare of unorganised labourers.
Manch president Manoranjan Sahu, Bibhuti Shankar Bindhani, trade union leader Pramod Mishra, Ravi Shankar Mishra, Niranjan Bisi and Brajakishore Singhbhoi spoke on the occasion.
The leaders slammed the State Government for not paying attention to their repeated demands relating to the unoganised labourers. “It is unfortunate that even though there are various provisions for the welfare of unorganized labour sector, the State Government has turned callous to implement those,” Manch president Sahu.
The labour leaders also highlighted the problems of migrant labourers. They demanded complete abolition of bonded labour system. Bonded labour is a social strain and it has to be wipe out from the society completely, trade union leader Pramod Mishra pointed out.
