ISLAMABAD, Sep 1: A large number of employees of the Printing Corporation of Pakistan (ECP) on Aug 31 held a protest against the non-payment of salaries, even though the government had announced they will be paid soon.

The employees appealed to the finance minister to make special arrangements and release the funds immediately so they can celebrate Eidul Azha. PCP Workers Union general secretary Bilal Mehmood told Dawn the government had announced that the 700 employees will be paid their salaries by Aug 28. Mr Mehmood said the only solution was that the finance minister should allocate a supplementary grant of Rs25 million and ensure the salaries are paid.
