Toba Tek Singh, Pakistan: The sit-in of powerloom workers of the Sadhar industrial sector took place for the ninth straight day on Wednesday at Faisalabad’s Airport Chowk in Pakistan after the deadlock continued between powerloom workers and owners over increasing wages of workers as per the notification of the government.

Traffic also remained out of gear. The Powerloom workers’ movement is mainly led by Labour Qaumi Movement leader Baba Latif Ansari, reports The Dawn.

In his speech to the participants of the sit-in, Ansari criticised the attitude of the Faisalabad district administration for their failure to resolve the issues faced by the workers against the owners.

He announced that strike and sit-in will continue till the acceptance of their demand to increase their wages as fixed by the government.

Also, scores of residents of different localities of Faisalabad’s Samundri Road area staged a protest demonstration on Wednesday outside Fesco sub-divisional office on Samundari Road to protest against Fesco for sending them inflated power bills.
