Labour class was the back bone of the society and Congress party is committed for their welfare and addressing their genuine issues. This was said by Congress Vice president J&K and MLA Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori in a function organized by NHPC Employees Union and Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC) at NHPC Kishtwar on Friday where hundreds of laborers working in various public and private sectors participated in the function.
