Retired employees of PTCL protest in Rawalpindi: Daily “TheNews” Dated November 7, 2010:

A large number of retired employees of Pakistan Telecommunications Limited (PTCL) took out to streets Saturday to protest against the non-implementation of the government orders on them regarding increase in pension and medical allowance for the last 5 months by the management.
In connection with the protest programme given by the Retired Employees Action Committee of PTCL, hundreds of retired employees gathered at Benazir Bhutto Road and staged a demonstration against the management for not implementing the government orders. Carrying banners and placards in their hands, the demonstrators headed by M H Aslam, Fida Hussain, Raja Irfan, Raja Aurangzeb raised vociferous slogans against the stance adopted by the PTCL management.
Addressing the demonstrators, Fida Hussain, Chairman of the Action Committee vehemently denounced the management for its negligence towards implementing government orders including increase in medical allowance by 25 per cent and pensions by 15 per cent of the retired employees of the government departments. With the issuance of the notification, all departments have enforced the orders, but ironically the same has not been implemented in PTCL for the last 5 months, he regretted.
Retired Employees Action Committee General Secretary Raja Irfan asked the management to implement the orders without any further delay otherwise the series of protest campaign would be expanded country wide. Due to non-implementation of the government orders, more than 40,000 retired employees have been affected by this, he stated.
According to Raja Irfan, the office bearers of the committee held several negotiations with the concerned high officials of the management to get enforced the orders, but they have flatly refused to comply with it.
