Lady health workers in the lurch at D-Chowk
Protesting workers have been bearing with authorities’ tactics to quell their pursuit of rights for the past five days.

Protesting lady health workers have announced marching to Parliament House as the authorities have been turning a deaf ear to their voice for the rights. 

The lady health workers have been on protest for the past five days against the authorities for depriving them of their due rights.

They were reportedly made to sit in the dark after streetlights were switched off while the closure of restaurants near the venue too left them without food and water, and they were also denied basic sanitation facilities.

The health workers along with hundreds of unionists from different departments took to the Islamabad’s D-Chowk a few days ago in the hunt for their due rights.

Reports said lady health workers have been standing firm against the government tactics to make them call off the protest though other protesting officials gave in and left the capital.

According to a leader of protesting lady health workers, they went to a nearby petrol pump and metro station to use toilets and the staff there said that the government had directed them not to allow them the facilities.

Leaders from the Young Doctors Association visited the venue to show solidarity with them and PPP also announced support but they were too busy with their PDM activities.
