He said though the host countries are also faced with many problems due to coronavirus, yet we need to convince them to be more sympathetic to labourers and the working class.
Imran Khan emphasized that the lockdown has hit the labour community the most. He said the future is very uncertain as we do not know how long the economy will take to recover from the impacts of the pandemic.
