Bilawal for eliminating child labour through social protection

KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Patron-in-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has called for more efforts, including legislation and practical steps, to remove the perils of child labour from the country. He also called for providing the children with strong social protection, says a press release. In his message on the eve of World Day Against Child Labour, Bilawal said that children were future of our nation and every parent had the responsibility to save their children from falling into the trap of child labour. “However, it is a responsibility of the state to protect the children and take strong and committed steps to ensure that every child is given adequate chance to education, health, leisure and basic freedoms,” he added. He said that People’s Labour Bureau (PLB) also had the responsibility to hold consultations with other stakeholders and present recommendations to the government to eliminate child labour.
