Contractual workers in Gilgit Baltistan hit streets, demand job regularisation

Gilgit Baltistan, 20 April 2021:- It’s been weeks since these contractual workers in the illegally occupied Gilgit Baltistan are demanding their regularisation. But the government, which passed an act assuring the same, some twelve months ago, is nowhere to be seen. Demonstrators say the act that guarantees them a pay hike and status up-gradation is not being put into effect by the bureaucracy. And while their demands are not being met on one side, a large number of contractual workers are being laid off from their departments.
