PESHAWAR - Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Irrigation Arshad Ayub on Monday said that if our workers are prosperous then the industrialists will be happy and if the industrialists are prosperous then the country will be prosperous and developed.

He expressed these views while addressing a meeting held at the office of Hattar Industrial Association at Hattar Industrial Estate Haripur under the auspices of Workers Welfare Board (WWB) on the occasion of distribution of allotment letters of quarters to 40 workers of 15 different industries.

The meeting was also attended by members of Hattar Industrial Estate Association, officials of Workers Welfare Board, owners of various industries, workers and others.

Arshad Ayub directed the Workers Welfare Board that all facilities should be ensured for these workers and special attention should be given to health and education. He said that no abuse should be done to any of the workers working here and if anyone was found doing so, action would be taken against him and the entire responsibility would rest with the Workers Welfare Board.

He said that they should also create facilities for the industrialists and I would also like to thank the industrialists who have invested their capital here and set up their own units which have provided employment to our people.

He directed the industrialists to contribute as much as possible in the Workers’ Welfare Fund so that the workers could get maximum benefits.
