Employees of SBBWDC stage protest for non-payment of salaries.
HYDERABAD -- The employees of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Women Development Centre (SBBWDC) Hyderabad continued their protest on consecutive third day against non-payment of their salaries.
The protest was staged outside Hyderabad Press Club (HPC) on Saturday.
Leading the demo, Fozia Ashraf, Ghulam Ali, Ashiq Ali and others told media that their department had not paid salaries to them for 13 months.
Every year, they had to knock at the door of court for release of their salaries and after receiving direction from court, Sindh government had released their salaries, they alleged.
Despite repeated assurances made by higher authority for releasing their salaries, they were not paid and even few days have been left in celebrating the Eid, but so far they could not purchase anything for their families, they said.
They appealed to Chief Minster Sindh to help them in releasing their salaries so that they can also celebrate Eid.
