    Wow, this is a very good decision taken by govt. By the way people who are against 2 weekly off are mostly bussiness man and how they can understand the problems of a people doing jobs,specialy in banks.as people think bankers are sitting in a good building in a.c hall, butthy don, t understand tht bank is paying thm only for 9-5, but thy are working 9 to none as thy don, t know


  2. Is these weekly two holidays implement in PTCL????????????????????????


  3. Well done, central governemt of Pakistan. Finally, the long awaited decision has come. Govt employees were were long waiting for it. All European contries, America, all Arab countries are already doing the same.

    Thank you Prime Minister Gillani sahb.


  4. In my opinion the main reason of shortage of electricity is theft so that fully efforts may be made on this subject,although no any fruitful results will come with 2 days holidays. No doubt 2 days holiday will better for govt; employees but the same will create too much problems for general public because for completion of a minor work the public is facing too much difficulty by making so many rounds of the offices and a problem which must be done in a hours it take weeks and months. so that this problems of the public may be kept in the mind


  5. i think it’s good decision two weekly off but our Government should think about basic problems of county & about people problems. we are so behind from other contries. We need devoted leaders with Pakistan and it’s people.


  6. Wow, this is a very good decision taken by govt. By the way people who are against 2 weekly off are mostly bussiness man and how they can understand the problems of a people doing jobs,specialy in banks.as people think bankers are sitting in a good building in a.c hall, butthy don, t understand tht bank is paying thm only for 9-5, but thy are working 9 to none as thy don, t know when thy free from office. So in this context 2 weekly off help them to relax, and also to do their pending works tht they can, t do becoz of long working hours, and whn thy free markets close. So all the jelous people stay awAy and let the bankers live a normal life by utilizing two weekly off


  7. A good and a long awaited decision of the Federal Government. But the honoured Chief Minister Punjab has reservations on every move made by the central governemt, even if it is a good decision. All the European countries enjoy two days weekend and still they have progressed. It is a good decision of the federal goverment in the present circumstances of energy crisis. Moreover, two holidyas are good to relax so that people can work for the remaining five days with full vigour and energy. The problem is not with the two holidays, it is a good move, rather the problem is with us because we have become a corrupt nation…….so we should improve and mend ourselves. But the problem with Chief Minister Punjab is that he wants to declare every thing null and void that is proposed by the fedearl government.

    Please, Honoured Chief Minister sahb leave this slogan now, “Main Nah manu”!


  8. It is good decision 2 offs in a week. I am a banker , I think all the employees will be very be happy.

    I strongly Recomands that 2 offs should forever in Banks. (Ameen)
