Sindh Minister for Information and Labour Saeed Ghani has said that the Sindh government had always given priority to the legislation that was possibly the best for the welfare of the labourers and workers of the province. He said that Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari always wanted to see the workers and Labourers prosper. He said this while addressing a meeting of the governing board of the Sindh Employees Social Security Institution on Thursday. Saeed Ghani said that the institutions created by Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto for the prosperity and welfare of the members of the labour community were exemplary. Former president Asif Ali Zardari also always gave priority to the legislation not only to protect workers’ economic rights, but also their basic rights, provincial minister added. He said that labourers from all over the country were turning to Sindh in search of employment, but due to the federal government’s failed economic policies, labourers in Sindh were the worst affected. Addressing the labour department’s officers, Saeed Ghani said that he wanted to provide the best possible facilities in the schools and hospitals functioning under the Labour department. The minister said that he wanted to make all the institutions being run under Sindh Employees Social Security Institution of international standard. He asked the members of the governing board of Sindh Employees Social Security Institution to play their role and do their utmost in this regard. Members also confirmed and approved the minutes of the previous meeting of the governing board of SESSI. Representatives of labour and industrialists’ associations also attended the meeting.
