''The makers of India are sitting in their home due to lack of employment while the government is promoting ‘Make in India' ''
New Delhi, Aug 10: Terming the Bharatiya Jata Party-led NDA government as anti-labour, the Congress on Wednesday questioned its intention in bringing the Factories Amendment Bill, 2016 with only a few minor amendments while the Factories Amendment Bill, 2014 is still a property of the House.
“What is the urgency to bring the bill while the bill of 2014 is still a property of the House. We asked the same question to the government but they did not have any answer,” Congress spokesperson Gaurav Gogoi said here at a press conference.
Terming the tiol Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s move as anti-labour, Gogoi said that all the labour reforms related policies of the government were heavily criticised by all the major labour organisations. He said the government labour policies are in favour of factories and corporate houses.
“The makers of India are sitting in their home due to lack of employment while the government is promoting ‘Make in India’,” he said.
Earlier, Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya introduced the Factories Amendment bill, 2016 in the Lok Sabha despite objections from the Congress. (IANS)
