KARACHI: Fourteen workers of Estate & Enforcement Department, Lyari Development Authority, have been knocking at the doors of senior officers to get salaries for the past three months after being sacked.

The workers include poor security guards of BPS-2 to BPS-16 officers, who had been working in the department for four to six years and were once transferred in Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Towns (SMBBT) project for a brief period of time and then recommended to be ‘reengaged’ in LDA by Director General LDA Agha Maqsood, said a victim requesting not to be named.

He further said that the LDA secretary issued a letter on 2nd January 2015 for extension of their service for three months until 31st March rather than reengagement, hence, their service had been legally terminated then.

The person said that they were cheated for not getting reappointment, however how could the government withhold their salaries for the days they provided services to the department. The workers had families that depended on them and how would they manage without three months of salaries.

“The recently appointed deputy director of Estate & Enforcement Department is not cooperating with us. He says to get the salary from the previous deputy director,” he said.
