PTDC employees protest, demand salary.
Yesterday the protesters came out on the roads, "Naan" (bread) dangling around their neck with the help of strings and hooks, to show that they were facing difficulties in meeting their food expenses.
One employee also tried self-immolation but he was stopped by the people present at the site.
No attention has been paid to the fate of the employees by representatives of the regional government, or the higher officials of the PTDC, despite of the ongoing protest.
There are reports that the federal government is planning to hand over management of the PTDC tourist facilities located in the region to the Gilgit-Baltistan government.
