The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday hit back at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of waging a war on the labour class and said any delay by the grand old party on the labour law reform is ‘unwarranted’.

“All political parties owe a responsibility towards ensuring that we have this reform in place. In principle, all political parties and all state governments have agreed to this reform. So, any delay is unwarranted,” BJP spokesperson G.V.L. Narasimha Rao said.

“The government has shown its sincerity by engaging in discussion with all the opposition parties. By agreeing to consider all the concerns that are being expressed by the Congress Party and the Communists, even after the Select Committee had finalised its recommendations,” he added.

Rahul Gandhi had yesterday launched a blistering attack on Prime Minister Modi and alleged that the initiatives launched by the BJP-led NDA Government were not benefitting the labour class and was instead trampling their rights.

“Prime Minister Modi thinks that the India labourer is corrupt and can work in fear. He thinks he can break and discipline them. The labourers are scared and are living in fear. Modiji, try and secure their children’s future and then watch how far they take India,” Rahul said while addressing the 31st plenary session of Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC).

      Rahul hi should tell this country what the Congress govts have done for the workers in the unorganized sectors. They pampered the trade unions who just wanted to protect their members, did less work in spite of getting top wages,firing workers is next to impossible which led to contract labour.Why could India not make labour rules like UK where a worker can move from job to another yet be secured by employment insurance.The Congress govt failed in making a smooth mechanism which protected labour yet created new jobs with out the contract system
