Jobs, social security goals for Dattatreya

Bandaru Dattatreya took over on Monday as the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Labour and Employment and vowed to implement Prime Minister Modi’s vision of assuring social security to workers and generating massive employment.

“I will ensure that social security schemes are implemented. Employment would be another priority,” he told reporters.

Dattatreya, however, did not comment on labour law reforms and said he would study the issue. He added that he would be meeting an Australian delegation in Mumbai  to discuss overseas employment to Indians.
