Respect for labour should be national trait: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said respect for dignity of labour should be our national trait.



New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said respect for dignity of labour should be our national trait.

"If someone wears a suit, long kurta, we stand up to greet him, but if a milkman or autorickshaw driver comes, we don`t treat him well. Dignity of labour should be our national character," Modi said in his address to the nation on Independence Day.

Modi said his government has introduced an identity card for labourers from the unorganise sector and that these will give them the benefit of social welfare schemes.
