Harish Rawat raises issue of Industrial unemployment

Sunday, 18 October 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

To attract the attention of the government on increasing unemployment in the industrial sector, former chief minister and general secretary of All India Congress Party (AICC) Harish Rawat took out a ‘Parikrama Yatra’ of SIIDCUL Haridwar on Saturday.

The Congress leader did a circumvallation of the industrial area with a select group after offering prayers at a temple on the day. 

He said that the government has brought many anti labour policies by amending the labour laws.

He said the objective of his Yatra is to attract the attention of the state government on the plight of the labourers.

Rawat demanded that the State Government should enter into a MoU with the industrial units so that the vacant posts in these units are reserved for the local youth.

He said that locals have the inherent right over the jobs in the industrial units. The Congress leader said that many industrial units are engaging in harassment of the labourers.

“Some units have reduced the salary while some have increased the working hours. Government should look into this. It appears that the political parties don’t have a broad understanding on employment generation,’’ he said.

Rawat added that the Congress party would make employment generation a major election issue. He said that on coming to power the Congress party would fill all the vacant posts in the government and it would revive all such posts which were declared dead by the BJP government. Rawat said that self employment would be made the major objective of the Government and for it necessary constitutional and financial measures would be taken.

The president of Uttarakhand Kisan Congress Committee Sushil Rathi and trade union leaders were present on the occasion.
