Govt should extend benefits to unorganized labour class: BJP
JAMMU, July 8: BJP senior leader Sat Sharma said that the government should treat them as human beings and extend all the benefits to them which are availed by the organized sector labour.

Addressing a gathering belonging to unorganized labour in Kalakot town of Rajouri district, Sat Sharma, who also visited a number of localities housing the poor population of the labour class in different parts of Rajouri district, interacted with them and took stock of their problems, said that it was indeed very unfortunate that the people working as labourers still lack basic amenities in their bastis where they live as well as no benefits of different schemes meant for the children of poor people have reached them. Not only this, they have not been covered under insurance and in case of any causality the family has to take rounds of government offices with a begging bowl seeking some sort of financial help.

Sat Sharma, while expressing concern over the coalgate scam amounting to thousands of crores, said that the only coal mine in Kalakot area which has been providing employment to a small section of labour community, too is at the verge of closing as the government has not been paying due attention towards its proper and regular functioning. The officials are passing time and minting money while the labour class is suffering. He said that the role of the sitting MLA of the ruling party, who has been elected for the second term, has not been encouraging as he has shown least concern for the welfare of the unorganized labour class of his constituency.

The BJP leader stressed upon the government that any person earning livelihood by working as labourer should be registered and all the benefits should be extended to him so that he or she can manage the family affairs and arrange basic items of survival.
