Islamabad: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has slammed the Pakistan PM Imran Khan-led government for laying off as many as 4,544 employees of the Pakistan Steel Mill (PSM).

"The heartless government’s sacked 4500 workers of Pakistan Steel mills. PPP will return each & everyone back to work. The land of this historical industrial asset belongs to the people of Sindh, we will not let the PTI get away with this economic murder. Sack Imran not workers," he tweeted.

The 4,544 PSM employees, including teachers, drivers, firemen, operators, health and security staffers, SEDGMs, managers and others had been sacked, a spokesperson from the Steel Mill was quoted as saying by The Nation.

Meanwhile,  Minister for Industries and Production Hammad Azhar responded to his comment and posted on Twitter: "Let me remind everyone that it was during PPP tenure that PSM went from a profit making entity with billions in bank account to a heavy loss making and bankrupt entity."

"Capacity was taken down to 40% and then PMLN shut it down in 2015," the Minister said.
