Lahore:27 May:According to the statement, “The status of the state is like a mother and mothers don’t differentiate between their children.” The PTU leadership said that the prime minister should have played his role and announced the three-month honorarium for every government employee of the country. They said that as many as three million government employees are working day and night for the stability and progress of the country. They asked why then the additional pay was announced for just federal employees? The statement said that differentiation between federal and provincial government employees was unacceptable. “Therefore, the prime minister should, at once, announce the honorarium for all the government employees of the country.” They said that if the current government continued to differentiate between the federal and provincial employees, they would face the consequences in the upcoming general elections. “The three million employees equate to 15 million votes,” the statement added.
