Lady health workers protest for regularisation
Karachi: Lady health workers held a demonstration outside the Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Wednesday demanding their job regularisation by the government.
“Instead of listening to our grievances, the present government is treating us like terrorists. We are being put behind bars and tortured,” said President of the All Pakistan Lady Health Workers Association Bushra Arain.
She said that a long march is being planned towards Islamabad in January where thousands of workers will stage a sit-in in front of the Parliament House. “We make polio eradication and other campaigns successful, but once over all promises made to us are forgotten,” lamented one worker during the protest.
The workers carried placards and chanted slogans, vowing to continue their struggle despite pressure from government officials.
