KARACHI - A large number of Workers of National Programme for Improvement of Water Courses (NPIW) Employees Association Sindh staged a sit-in for regularisation of their jobs outside the Karachi Press Club on Friday. The workers who were holding banners and placards inscribed with the slogans for the regularization chanted slogans for their cause. While addressing the workers the leaders including Ayub Burdi, Waqar Shah, Nauman Channa, Munawar Das and others said that the same kind of a sit-in was held on 28th January but Sindh Police dealt them with tear gas shelling and baton charges and sixty leaders and staff members were arrested. They said that it is a pity to state that even photographs of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto were tarnished with boots by the police. They said that while taking the notice of the above matter Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani had issued the directives to Sindh government for regularisation of NPIW staff but action is still awaited. They mentioned that all the legal formalities for the matter through presenting a bill in Sindh Assembly have completed, law department and finance department have given favourable remarks but chief minister Sindh is deliberately delaying this matter and five years contract of NPIW staff is going to end on June 3oth. The warned the high ups that if their demands will not be fulfilled so the protest and stage-in will remain continue until all the staff comprising 1800 employees is regularised.
