    APCA ka scale itna bara nahi lekin phir bhi deputy prime minister ko approch keia aur bohat achi mulakat ki. AGPR ne jo time waste kiya uska bohat nuksan hoga aur shayed ab finance minister bhi yeh keh ker jan chura le time kam time reh gaya hau aur next budget tak wait karo. Lekin APCA ko appreciate kerna chaiye aur AGPR ko samajhna hoga k darna hai to AGPR union disolve kerdo. Strike aur dharne mein bohat employees the to kia unko govt ne dismiss ker dia. Derna band karo AGPR aur izzat se geo apna hak le ker.

    Main apna part ada karoon ga jub isb main hoga, or inhen bura bhala mainey to nai app ney kaha tha, thats why maney app ko kaha k ab to app khush ho gay na k unhon ney protest kya :p.
    (Yeh sari Unions including AGPR union sub drama bazi hai aur yeh union leaders touts hain higher authorities ke. Ager associations/unions employees ke basic rights ko protect nahi ker sakti aur der der ker hi jeena hai to in sub ko dissolve kerdena chaiye. UNION LEADERS SARE DERPOK AUR BEGHERAT HAIN GOVT KE HATHON BIKEY HUE HAIN)

    yeh statement thi app ki sub Unions/Leaders k barey main. Bura bhala main nai kehta kissi ko, har kissi ki apni majboriyan bhi hoti hain, any how jo behtar hua ho jaey ga, miley ga wohi jo naseeb main ho ga. Pahley insan kissi sey muamla kar ley ya ground reality ko jan ley, phir kissi k barey main apney views diey jain. dont mind plz.

Dharne ke end men yeh decide hua hai ke ager Pervez elahi sab ke promise se kam nahi bana to mulk geer ahtajaj hoga.
