ISLAMABAD, May 1 (APP):Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Sayed Zulfikar Abbas Bukhari Wednesday said pension, social security and welfare packages would be offered to labours for their socio-economic well being under the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ‘Ehsas Programme’.
In his video message on ‘Labour day’, paying tribute to the labours working inside and outside of the country, Zulfikar said his ministry was working out various plans to ensure provision of all rightful benefits to this marginalized segment of society as per the pro-labour policy actions of Ehsas Programme.
“This is the first government which protects workers rights and takes labour-centric initiative,” he remarked while expressing his resolve to fight for their fundamental rights at every forum.
He said the government was focusing to include every working class under the programme ranging from skilled, non skilled, productive to unproductive workers.
Zulfikar Bukhari, criticizing the previous government for not providing optimum care to this class said his ministry was working tirelessly to provide relief to workers.
