Toba Tek Singh:  Scores of brick kiln workers, along with their families, recently demonstrated here against the bonded labour system in Pakistan.

The rally that started from Gojra Road octroi post was led by Punjab Bhatta Mazdoor Union secretary general Muhammad Shabbir, reports Dawn News.

The participants were seen carrying red flags, banners and placards inscribed with their demands.

They also chanted slogans against labour welfare department officials for allegedly siding with kiln owners instead of redressing workers complaints.

Addressing the rally at Shahbaz Chowk, the speakers demanded recovery of nine members of a worker’s family allegedly kidnapped from a kiln at Chak 327-JB by men of a kiln owner, reports Dawn News.
