Islamabad, 10 February 2021: Former President of Pakistan and President Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians, Asif Ali Zardari has strongly condemned violence and use of tear gas on the government employees. He said that it has greatly pained him to see what happened in D-Chowk today.
President Zardari said that people who are just demanding an increase in their salaries should not be treated like enemies. He said that he had predicted how Imran Khan would act after coming to power. Imran Khan can do nothing but exploit the people. Why does it sting the PTI government to allow an increase in the salaries of government employees?
PPP raised salaries of government employees despite facing hurdles and difficult situations. The situation now has become so grim that small scale employees have fallen below the poverty line. President Zardari stated that the country cannot progress with the economic exploitation of government employees.
