Ex Haryana DGP urges Centre to bring legislation on job rights
New Delhi: Former Director General of Haryana Police, Sheel Madhur, has urged the Central Government to bring a legislation providing for Right to Employment to all citizens of the country.
Addressing a press conference at the Constitution Club here, he also urged the Government to introduce a Bill, "Right to Employment for All", in the coming Winter Session of Parliament so that a comprehensive discussion could be initiated before adopting a model legislation.
He also appealed to all political parties to extend their full support and cooperation for the enactment of such a legislation guaranteeing jobs for all the citizens in the country.
Madhur suggested that for effective implementation of such a legislation, the Central Government would also need to set up a 'National Employment Commission' to go into various aspects of employment and job opportunities at the grass-root level. Similar Commissions can also be set up in various states.
Pointing out that the youth comprises for 65 per cent of the total 135 crore population of the country, he said these youth want to work honestly and diligently if they are provided job opportunities. This will contribute to speedy development and progress of the country to achieve the objective of a "Strong and vibrant" India.
Madhur said that he had recently launched a website www.makeindiastrong.com to coordinate for providing employment to the youth in the private sector.
