LAHORE - The All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) staged rallies against inflation and demanded increase in their salaries here on Tuesday. Led by President APCA Department of Agriculture, a rally was taken out from Department of Livestock, Cooper Road to the Punjab Assembly. Another rally led by President APCA Lahore Haji Irshad from Department of Wildlife, Sanda Road also reached outside the Punjab Assembly and protested in favour of its demands. The protesters chanted slogans against the government for not fulfilling the demands and burdening the poor clerks with crushing price-hike. A number of protesters were holding banners and placards on the occasion. Speaking on the occasion, APCA leaders Haji Irshad, Mushtaq Gujar, Younis Bhatti and Mohammad Afzal asked the government to act upon the recommendations of Pay and Pension Committee to provide them financial cushion so that they could meet the expenses of the present day life. They said that the government had promised 200 per cent increase in their salaries from January 2010, but it was not fulfilled yet. The APCA activists on the occasion joined hands with the protesting contractual employees of University of Health Sciences. They asked Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to regularise the employees immediately and suspend the Vice-Chancellor of the University, who allegedly disobeyed his orders. They also warned the government of pen down strike and locking up of offices throughout the country if their demands remained unfulfilled.
