LAHORE (PR) Thousands of industrial workers had become unemployed due to loadshedding of gas & power and closure of thousands of industrial units in Punjab. Poor government policies are aggravating unemployment and poverty in the country.

The Social & economic deprivation of the poor masses and rising irrational inequalities between rich & poor would prove a social “Atom Bomb” in the Society. Seventy per cent tax payers are the common people whereas the majority of the feudal lords and parliamentarian owing billion of rupees property and assets got scot free from their legal obligations.

These remarks were made by Khurshid Ahmed, General Secretary of Pakistan Workers Confederation at a Press statement  on Saturday.
