Municipal workers continue strike

Published December 5, 2021

LARKANA: Local Gov­er­­­nment employees dem­an­ding disbursement of their salaries through treasury offices continued their province-wide strike for a sixth consecutive day on Saturday. In Larkana district, they also held demonstrations in Larkana city, Ratodero, Naundero and several other towns.

Reports from almost all cities and towns of Sindh suggested that garbage was piling up on roads and streets due to the strike by municipalities’ employees. Complaints of overflowing sewage also remained unattended for a week creating health and hygiene issues.

A call for the strike was given by the All Pakistan Local Government Wor­kers Federation, Sindh. It said the protest would continue until their demand was met.
