Janata Dal-United leader Sharad Yadav on Monday said the system of hiring contract labour was bypassing the laws and the workers were left without any protection.

Yadav, raising the issue of nine labourers being killed in an accident at a construction site in Pune, said: “We did not change labour laws, but this disease of contract labour has spread across the country.”

“We found a way to surpass labour laws,” Yadav said, adding that even in the parliament the cleaners were on contract.

“It means no responsibility and bypassing the rights labourers in India got after years of struggle.”

Meanwhile, Congress leader Anand Sharma said there was reduction in jobs and, raising a question at the government, Sharma said: “The government promised employment so there should have been four-five crore employment opportunities. The government figures say employment is going down.”
