An orientation programme on Draft Anti-Trafficking Bill 2016 was organised by the Migration Information and Resource Centre (MIRC), Bhubaneswar held here on Friday.
Bonded labourers of Balangir, Nuapada, Subarnapur and Bargarh districts attended the programme. Various features of the Bill were explained to participants in Odia. The labourers sought to include them in district and State level bodies for proper redressal of their grievances.
MIRC’s Umi Daniel called upon bonded labourers to strengthen their organisations to put forth their problems at higher forums. “The bonded labourers have all rights to fight to stop distress migration and bondage,” said Daniel.
Some labourers narrated how they have rebuilt their lives with rehabilitation assistance.

Among others, Saroj Barik, Jyoti Prakash from Aide Et Action Bhubneshwar explained various provisions of the Bill.
