Biren greets people on May Day

Imphal: Owing to the hardship faced by the people due to Covid-19 pandemic, Manipur government has taken several measures for labour welfare and employment generation of migrant workers hailing from the state.

Chief minister said this as he greeted people of Manipur on the occasion of International Workers’ Day, popularly known as May Day which falls on May 1.

The International workers’ day is observed to honour the struggles and gains made by workers and labourers. It was on this day in the year 1886 that the labour class came together and revolted against the unjust system. They raised their voices for paid leaves, good wages and proper breaks. The day also symbolises the victory of the working class for their struggle to get 8-hour work day, Biren said.

“On this occasion, let us pledge ourselves to uphold and strengthen the spirit of working class and acknowledge their contribution to the country’s progress,” Biren said.

Speaker Y. Khemchand in his greetings said, “This is the day to salute the hard work and dedication of strong willed souls around us. With hard work comes great satisfaction.”

Works minister Th. Biswajit greeting the working people on the day urged to resolve to defeat the pandemic.
