Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar says the government has lifted the restriction on construction industry to benefit the labour community attached with this sector.
Talking to a private news channel, he said the step was taken to remove the miseries and hardships of the daily wagers linked with the construction work.
He regretted that Pakistan did not have proper data system of labour class working in the construction sector.
To a question about choosing “Tiger Force” symbol for the distribution of food items among deserving families in wake of coronavirus pandemic, the minister said that PML(N) and other rival parties should express satisfaction over the name of “Tiger” as the symbol has been used by PML-N leaders during election campaign.
He advised the opposition to come forward for helping the lower income group.
