BBSYDP: an appeal for justice

I AM a resident of Khairpur Mir’s. I worked as a lab assistant at Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Programme’s Khwaja Institute of IT, Karachi, from February to May. It was a four-month contract but I was not paid my salary for the said period.

However, I am being ignored, harassed and threatened with dire consequences whenever I ask for my salary. I have also requested the monitoring team of the programme but have not got any response.

I live alone here and am a student of MSc (Environment) at the University of Karachi. I am confused and have no clue about what will happen.

I request the authorities concerned to look into the matter.
