Mumbai: In a fresh salvo at BJP-led governments at the Centre and in Maharashtra, NCP chief Sharad
Pawar on Wednesday accused them of being anti-labour and "protecting" interests of industrialists.

"The government protects interests of industrialists and not of workers," Pawar said, addressing a labour convention organised by NCP.

"Till now, government permission was needed to wind up industrial unit having more than 100 workers. Now the limit has been raised up to 300," Pawar said.

Such changes will lead to workers losing jobs on a large scale, the former Union minister said.

Taunting state labour minister Prakash Mehta, Pawar said, "When I heard his name, I wondered what is his connection with workers."

Workers should unite in large numbers against this government, Pawar said. "Show them your collective power," he added.
