THROUGH these columns I would like to appeal to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take some action as the employees of the Pakistan Cotton Standards Institute (PCSI), an autonomous body under the ministry of textile industry, have not been paid their salaries for the past six months.

In spite our repeated requests, no action has been taken to resolve our problem.

We are facing very serious financial problems due to the non-payment of our salaries. We are unable to buy foods, pay utilities’ bills and education fees of our children.

The PCSI employees are not able to initiate costly litigation. We hope the Chief Justice will intervene in order to resolve the problem.
