He said that after massive protest from the lower staff the Sindh Minister for Education and Literacy Department Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq had assured them for regularization of their jobs, but the government so far has not regularized the employees. He said the government has also stopped salaries of contract basis employees working in Karachi, Hyderabad and other parts of the Sindh.
Darya Khan said that the association had tried many times to hold meeting with Sindh Minister for Education and Secretary Education for solution to this issue but they refused to meet them.
He said that the police on Friday again restored baton charge on them, also using teargas. He said the police arrested 12 members of their association. He said that the non-teaching staff would continue protest till notification is issued from the government for their job regularization. He urged upon the government to immediately release the arrested protestors.
