KARAK: The mineworkers here on Sunday observed a strike to record their protest against unprecedented inflation, saying they were unable to provide a two-time meal to their families. The workers of salt and gypsum mines observed a daylong strike here during which they did not go inside the mines for work. District president of the labourers’ union Naveed Khattak and others visited the mineworkers and addressed them at Karat area. The speakers condemned the record price hike in the country and said that prices of essential commodities had gone out of reach of the labour class. They also complained that the contractors were taking more work from the workers and paying them fewer wages. They said in case of any injury even first aid was not provided to the workers, which was an injustice with them.
