Sept. 1 Black Day Sep-13-2010
RSS KATHMANDU: Foreign employment entrepreneurs celebrated Sept. 1 as a Black Day. In memory of the riots that followed the murder of 12 Nepalis in Iraq vandalised manpower agencies on the day in 2004, they took out a rally from Minbhawan and converged into an assembly at Thapagau. Addressing the gathering, chairman of Foreign Employment Entrepreneurs' Association Som Lal Bataju said the government should provide compensation for manpower agencies for the damage incurred in the vandalism. Association's former chairman Tilak Bahadur Ranabhat said the foreign employment sector has developed as one of the backbones of the country's economy.
