He expressed these views in his message on the occasion of the International Labor Day of the workers. The Governor said that we were well aware of the difficult conditions and difficulties faced by the workers due to the recent severe poverty, inflation and unemployment which has had a direct impact on the working class, especially after the heavy rains and floods in Balochistan, the life of labourers has become miserable.
However, we are personally taking practical steps through unique income support programs, utility stores in the province, Pakistan Red Crescent Society and many national and international organizations to end the economic hardship of the poor and needy people can create some ease in their lives, he underlined.
He said that apart from this, conscious efforts were being made to promote economic and commercial activities across the province and to provide necessary facilities to the poor farmers at their doorsteps. Malik Abdul Wali Khan Kakar said that it was a recognized fact that the working class was the backbone of the industrial and economic development of the country saying that it was the laborers and farmers who work day and night to increase the national production.
He said that the religion of Islam has also recognized the greatness and dignity of the laborer and ordered that the laborer’s wages should be paid before his sweat dries up. He said that in view of the special importance of workers and farmers, the current federal and provincial governments were taking steps for the welfare of all workers and farmers and to give them a respectable position in the society so that their economic condition could be improved.
Addressing all the workers of the country, Governor Balochistan asked them to work with hard work, dedication and honesty and play their full role in the development.
