March 17, 2015 Off By Web Desk

LARKANA: The employees of Larkana Development Authority (LDA) and Larkana Municipal Corporation (LMC) have not yet been paid their monthly salaries since long rendering them helpless with no signs of respite.

The LDA employees are protesting since last 25 days without any notice by the concerned higher authorities, while LMC employees are also planning to demonstrations even though they have been physically verified by their bosses that they are regularly performing their government duties.

The LDA employees have not received their salaries since last 14 months and LMC employees since last six months, which shows that Sindh government is either facing financial crisis or is deliberately avoiding payment to their own appointees. As many as 272 LDA employees are soliciting their right by taking out rallies and holding demos daily for which they have established a camp at Jinnah Bagh roundabout.

Hafeez Chandio, Shahjehan Kalhoro, Asghar Shah, Hamid Kalhoro, Shahbaz Pathan, Feroze Khokhar and others of LDA Employees Association told media here on Wednesday that it was irony that present rulers had completely ignored their voice by closing their ears as they have been denied their monthly salaries since over a year.

As many as 524 LMC low paid employees have also not been paid their monthly salaries since last five months i-e November 2014 forcing them to face hunger like situation. All of them have been physically verified by the administrator and their duties have been fixed in various sections including anti-encroachment cell, traffic cell and elsewhere where they are delivering punctually everyday but without pay. They asked media that they will also come out on roads to hold protest and take out rallies for seeking justice. They further said that both LDA & LMC employees are working under the administrative control of local government department of Sindh Government but both are on the Larkana streets for seeking their legal and moral rights.
