Railway workers stage protest in Lahore

01 Dec

LAHORE: After failing to get their monthly salary, workers of cash-strapped Pakistan Railway staged a protest in Lahore on Wednesday.

Dozens of workers gathered outside the Railway Headquarters and held a demonstration against the non-payment of their salaries.

According to protestors, they had to return empty handed as banks refused to accept their cheques, citing lack of funds in Railway Account.

When contacted, a Railway spokesman said that efforts are under way to arrange money for the payment of workers’ salaries. SAMAA
