Khyber    -    A protest sit-in of daily wagers and labourers against the restricted policy at the crossing point was held here on Monday. Scores of local labourers and manual workers holding black flags in their hands initiated a protest camp in Torkham to file their resentment over the alleged controlled crossing policy at the border. Elders, political elites and people from different walks of life visited the protest camp and expressed their solidarity with the labourers’ community. Speaking on the occasion, those who led the sit-in including Qari Nazeem Gul Shinwari, Ameer Nawaz, Umar and others said that the policymakers should revise the visa relaxation policy for the locals who used to cross the border frequently. They asked for the resumption of the NADRA verification token system for the daily wagers and warned that labourers thrashing that had become a routine business should be halted forthwith. Various departments, stationed in Torkham act beyond their authority and tease the labourers for one or another reason that is unacceptable and needs to be curtained, they blamed.
