From Our Correspondent
FAISALABAD: The Pakistan Textile Workers Federation and the Punjab Trade Unions Federation have rejected the federal and Punjab budgets.
Addressing the general body meeting of the two federations here on Monday, Haji Abdul Jabbar, Maroof Khan, Muhammad Ali Alvi, Muhammad Bashir Shakir, Khalid Mehmood Khan, Rana Ghulam Muhammad, Muhammad Imran and Shah Muhammad Khan said that Rs 1,000 increase in wages of workers was unacceptable to them. They demanded the federal and provincial governments announce adequate increase in the workers’ wages otherwise they would be forced to stage demonstrations.
CRACKDOWN ON DECANTING: CPO Afzal Ahmad Kausar has directed the SHOs to launch a crackdown on the shopkeepers involved in illegal refilling of gas cylinders.
In a statement here on Monday, he said that the SHOs, beat officers and mobile police officers would be held responsible if they failed to control decanting.
He also directed the SHOs to intensify patrolling and check security arrangements in and around mosques to avoid any untoward incident during the month of Ramazan. He also asked them to keep a constant liaison with the Peace Committee members. The CPO said that he would himself conduct surprise visits to check the security arrangements.
