Protest against price-hike

LAHORE - All Pakistan Clerks Associations central leadership as well as members offered Eidul Azha prayers in front of Punjab Assembly to protest against nonstop price-hike in the country and did not sacrifice animals. To register their record, they sacrificed just a cock, which was also contributed by seven different departments. Addressing the protesting demonstration, the leaders of the All Pakistan Clerks Association said the central as well as the provincial governments instead of enhancing salaries by 200 percent, approved only 20 percent raise, which is not sufficient. They said that government is not implementing the recommendations of Pay and Pension Commission.
