CHITRAL: Scores of Class IV staff hired by the health department in Dec 2019 have not been paid salaries since their appointment.
These 108 low paid staffers are now on a protest sit-in, some of them carrying their kids, outside the district health officer Lower Chitral.
They said they were appointed after an advertisement placed on newspapers and were posted to different health units. During the COVID-19 pandemic they performed duty without any break and some of them also contracted the virus.
They said since their appointment they have not been paid any salary.
They demanded that their stuck up pays should be released otherwise they would go on a hunger strike till death.–GH Farooqui
