LAHORE: The Provincial Management Services (PMS) Association, in coordination with its national body, stepped up its protest campaign by observing a pen-down strike after Juma prayers to pressure the government to accept its demands regarding service matters.
The association was working while wearing black armbands for the past over one month but it could not get any response from the people at the helm.
PMS Association President Tariq Mahmood Awan said the government should reserve provincial posts for the provincial bureaucracy and added that it was a joke that the provincial posts were being occupied by the federal bureaucracy.
Mr Awan bemoaned that the government paid no heed to the PMS officer’s token protest of wearing black armbands and the provincial bureaucracy was pushed to begin pen-down strike for later half of Friday.
