KATHMANDU: The main opposition Nepali Congress (NC) has decided to raise its voice at the Federal Parliament against mismanagement, irregularities and exploitation existing in the labor and foreign employment sector.

According to Dr. Dila Sangraoula, who is the coordinator of the party’s shadow ministry of labor, employment and social security, shared about this through a press meet here today.

The Parliament winter session is commencing on December 20 and the party is all preparing to raise the issues in the session.

On the occasion, she accused the government of being unable to implement the labor pact, Memorandum of Understanding and agreements reached with the UAE, Malaysia, Japan and Mauritius.

Though the Malaysia Government has agreed to hire Nepali workers without any monetary charge, aspiring workers are being forced to pay a hefty amount by middle persons by using legal loopholes, she complained.

As she said, despite the labor agreement with Japan, an expected number of Nepali could not proceed for it due to lengthy procedures for language and skill tests.

She accused foreign employment agents of exerting undue pressure on respective departments and ministry with the change in the minister when the services of the Foreign Employment Department are being switched to an online system.
