Minister for Labor, Employment and Social Security Krishna Kumar Shrestha stressed the need for the Newar community to rise above politics and show unity.

Inaugurating the second convention of the Newa: Dey Dabu Bhanu Municipal Coordinating Committee held at Baisjangar of Bhanu Municipality-9 on Saturday, he stressed the need to avoid politics for the benefit of the community. "Among the Newar community, some are affiliated with the Nepali Congress, some with the CPN (UML), the CPN (Maoist Center), and some with the CPN (Unified Socialist). However, Newars must unite for the benefit of their community”, he said.

 Referring to his Ministry of Labor, he said that he is engaged in a campaign to end the distortions and anomalies. "I have tried to include everyone, without looking for political gains,” he added.

Also on Saturday, Minister Shrestha visited the family of Prakash Adhikari, 42, of Farakchaur in Tanahu's Byas Municipality-11, who died during foreign employment in Malaysia. Adhikari reportedly died of a heart attack after reaching his room from work.

Minister Shrestha said the work was being carried out to bring back Adhikari's body home from Malaysia.

The Foreign Employment Board under the Ministry makes arrangements to bring the body to the house in case of the death of a worker who has gone abroad after obtaining a labor permit. In addition, there is a provision to provide Rs. 700,000 as compensation.
