The Balochistan government has initiated a plan of action for eliminating child labour in the province, making education compulsory for children to 16 years age.
The provincial assembly had passed a resolution to end underage labour and the government would ensure strict implementation of law in that regard, Balochistan Minister for Social Welfare and Non-formal Education Mir Asadullah Baloch said while talking to APP.
He said the labour department was short of staff. However, the process to recruit new officials was underway so that strict action against the violators of child rights could be taken.
