Central general secretary of All Pakistan Clerk Association (APCA) Aurangzeb Kashmiri on Sunday strongly criticized the provincial government and said that in the name of reforms the provincial government is abolishing pension of government employees.
He expressed these views while addressing a meeting at the district education officer male office. APCA Mardan president Afridi Khan, APCA chairman Ibrahim Khan, Wahid Khan, Hazrat Ali, Bacha Hussain, Siddique Khan, Nihad Ali and other office bearers were also present in the meeting. Aurangzeb Kashmiri added that the government employees do not accept this black law of abolition of pension.
He argued that the government is passing an anti-employee bill from the provincial assembly in the name of pension reforms. He added that on the one side the provincial government pretended to increase salaries by 16% and integrate ad hoc relief into basic salaries while on the other side the government cut pension from scale 1 to scale 20 government employees.
He argued that they will not allow these tyrant rulers to pass this black law. He added that all the organizations and unions of government employees reject this cruel act of the provincial government. He announced that APCA government employees across the province would stage protests and sit-ins on June 28th in front of the press clubs of their respective districts and on June 30th in front of the provincial assembly.
