Gujrat: Pakistan Muslim League Senior Leader Chaudhry Moonis Elahi visited the protest camp of the employees of Gujrat Municipal Corporation against non-payment of their four-month salary.
Moonis Elahi, who during his visit was accompanied by scores of party workers, was given a warm welcome by the protesting employees for showing solidarity with them.
The MC employees have been protesting against the injustice at the Nawab Sahib Chowk.
The protesters chanted slogans against the MC authorities and city mayor who belonged to PML-N.
They told to Mr. Moonis Elahi that due to the non-payment of salaries they and their families had been facing hardships.
They deplored that none of the concerned officials had so far paid any heed to their issues.
Moonis Elahi condemned the PML-N government for its “anti-poor” policies and assured the protesters of his support. He said he would raise the issue in the Punjab Assembly.
As many as 30 daily-wage employees of Gujrat MC have not been paid salaries since December.
