May Labour Day inspire to assure workers’ rights-President Paudel

President Ramchandra Paudel wished all Nepali sisters and brothers at home and abroad for their happiness, peace and prosperity on the occasion of International Labour Day.

In a message delivered on the May Day today, President Paudel also wished for the assurance of labour rights. The international day has been marked on May 1 every year to have assured the professional dignity and respect of workers and establish their rights, he said, expressing the confidence that the day would help unite entire labour force across the country for the safeguarding of their rights, interests and freedoms.

The Nepal Constitution has guaranteed the right of every worker to access commensurate remuneration, facilities and contribution-based social security by assuring all the citizens with right to employment, the President noted. He expressed his belief that the labourer group would also be benefitted when the constitutional provisions are being materialized in practice to build democratic and socialism-oriented economy in the country.

He said it was inevitable to build self-reliant and independent economy by increasing domestic production through the development of entrepreneurship in the country.

The President wished may the day inspire all to take initiative towards assuring labourers’ rights including labour respect, self-employment, proper remuneration and social security.
