New Delhi: In a bid to spread its influence among working class, NCP will be setting up its trade union 'Rashtravadi Mazdoor' focusing on the unorganised sector.

Party chief Sharad Pawar made the announcement saying such an organisation was needed to organise workers in the unorganised sector in the changed economic scenario.

Addressing a meeting of the party's Labour Cell, Pawar expressed concern that 98 per cent of the workers were in the unorganised sector and their plight was sad.

He said the labour scene has undergone a dramatic change and the Rashtriya Mill Mazdoor Sangh in Mumbai which once boasted of lakhs of workers as members has now only a few thousand as the composite cotton mill concept has become a thing of a past.
