NGOs, migrant groups to protest against PBD

New Delhi, Jan 6 : Representatives of NGOs, trade unions and migrant groups plan to stage a protest against the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) as it kicks off Tuesday, demanding that the event should discuss issues of migrant and domestic workers.


The PBD should be made a platform for discussing the problems of labour diaspora and its agenda should include issues of migrant workers, the Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR), a public interest and research group, said in a release here Monday.

It said India should also ratify the International Labour Organisation conventions on migrant and domestic workers.

Over 2,000 non-resident Indians (NRIs) and people of Indian origin (PIOs) from across the world are likely to attend the 12th edition of the annual diaspora meet beginning here Tuesday.

The focus of the three-day event - which began in 2003 - will be on engaging the youth diaspora in different sectors.
