OB­SERVER RE­PORT IS­LAM­ABAD—The Prime Min­is­ter of Azad Kash­mir Ch Ab­dul Ma­jeed has said that hu­man re­sources were more im­por­tant than cap­i­tal re­courses and AJK has huge po­ten­tial in hu­man de­vel­op­ment sec­tor. Gov­ern­ment is striv­ing for up­lift of labour­ers liv­ing stan­dard. In his mes­sage in con­nec­tion with World Labour Day on Sunday the AJK Premier said that de­vel­op­ment of a coun­try was im­pos­si­ble with­out the pros­per­ity of labour­ers. “Labour­ers con­trib­ute the most to the na­tional econ­omy.

Their pros­per­ity and em­pow­er­ment is vi­tal for achiev­ing the de­vel­op­ment goals,” Prime Min­is­ter said. “Is­lam has de­clared labour­ers God’s favourites,” the PM said.

Ch Ma­jeed said that on Labour Day, there was need to re­new the pledge that all-out sup­port would be ex­tended for the wel­fare of labour­ers and pro­tec­tion of their rights. He said AJK’s work­force had the po­ten­tial to achieve the tar­gets of de­vel­op­ment.

“Our work­force is the back­bone of na­tional econ­omy… that is why the state gov­ern­ment is com­mit­ted to their well-be­ing,” the AJK PM said. He said sev­eral schemes had been launched to pro­vide health, hous­ing and ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties to labour­ers.
