LAHORE - Lady Health Workers and Lady Health Supervisors staged a demonstration outside Director General Health Punjab office on Monday to press for the demand of payment of last two months salaries.

The federal government has yet to release grant for National Program for Family Planning that caused delay in payment of salaries to staff for May and June.

Dozens of LHWs and LHSs gathered outside the DG Health office in protest against indifferent attitude of the health managers. They chanted slogans against the government. The protesting LHWs and LHSs said that they were facing hardships in making both ends meet in the holy month of fasting.

On assurance of getting two months salaries before Eid, LHWs and LHSs called off the protest.
