LAHORE: Foreign Affairs Minister and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that growth of the country would remain incomplete without providing adequate facilities and upholding the rights of the labourers.
In his message on the International Labour Day issued here on Sunday, he said the PPP always remained on front for the rights of the workers class of the society.
He said the manifesto of his party was based on the welfare and progress of the workers of the society.
He maintained that the Constitution guaranteed suitable wages, protection of lives and equality based relationships of employers with the labourers.
Bilawal said Benazir Employees Stock Option Scheme (BESOS) and the first three-tier Provincial Labour Policy were pride of the PPP.
“The PPP gave ownership of land to the poor agricultural workers,” he highlighted. He welcomed the raise of the lowest wages up to Rs25,000 by the coalition government.
He said the economy was in a weak position due to the failed financial policies of the former selected government which had hardened the lives of the poor people.
The PPP chairman assured the labour and trade unions that the incumbent government would play its role in protecting the rights of the labourers and workers.
