Sialkot: The large number of Pakistan Railways PR employees on Monday staged a protest demonstration against the dilapidated condition of PR employees’ Colony in Sialkot.
They said that the condition of PR residential quarters was miserable. They were carrying banners and placards and chanted slogans against the concerned department.
Later talking to media persons protesting PR employees said that they had been living in the rented houses as 64 residential quarters meant for the residence of the PR employees had been presenting a deserted look.
Employees said that they were forced to live in the rented houses by paying rents from their personal pockets due to the nasty condition of the said 64 PR residential quarters in PR Colony Sialkot near the Sialkot Junction Railway station.
The affected employees have urged the federal government to ensure the early repairing of the said quarters in the larger interest of the affected PR employees, in this regard.
