Kathmandu May 1.
Chief Minister of Gandaki State, Prithvi Subba Gurung has stressed on the need of paying special attention to the workers while formulating the government policies and programmes. In a message of best wishes to all the workers on the occasion of the International Labour Day or May Day, today, he said the situation of the working class people has become very vulnerable with many of them losing employment and reduction of their salary and facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said that in this connection arrangements have been made for the distribution, through the local levels, of relief specially to the workers who make a living by means of daily wage labour. Stating that policy has been adopted of restarting the incomplete construction works and industries producing essentials by adopting alertness and precaution against coronavirus during the latest lockdown period, he expressed the belief that the May Day would motivate all to fully utilise the capacity of the workers by providing them a dignified life and respecting them and their work.
