Besides, Patnaik also announced special security provisions for women workers. BJD believes in actions-over-words and respects labourers, said the Chief Minister adding labour power is the greatest wealth of the country.

“All who are working in the unorganised sector in State are deprived of social security, minimum wages and other facilities. So the Biju Shramik Samukhya has been formed with an aim to serve the labourers in the unorganised sectors, provide them security and expedite the programmes related to their development,” said Women and Child Development Minister, Prafulla Samal.
