Quote of ASSOCHAM & NAREDCO President on PM GKRA



‘PM Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan commences from June 20, to work in ‘mission mode’ to help migrant workers’

“As the COVID-19 pandemic hit Indian economy, perhaps the maximum collateral damage was borne by migrant labour. While reverse migration may have long term consequences for industry and the economy, for the migrant laborer, it has been a life-changing experience. There is a need for compassion towards those who suffered, as they trudged through the hundreds of kilometers to get back home – most important, there is a need to provide them with a source of income close to ‘home’. The Prime Minister Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan commences operations from June 20, with the aim to work in ‘mission mode’ to help migrant workers. Spanning a duration of 125 days, the rural public works scheme will be launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 20 from district Khagaria, Bihar. It comes as a truly  positive move, and India Inc. stands with the Prime Minister in support of this endeavour.”
