KARACHI, April 23: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has expressed solidarity with the protesting dock workers of Port Qasim and asked the Federal government to halt the privatization of Port Berths warning that his Party won’t allow usurpation of the genuine rights of the workers.
In a press statement issued here, the PPP Chairman said that Nawaz Sharif government was bent upon snatching the livelihood of the working classes and selling out the assets to his own Party’s business branches and leads. “However, the PPP won’t tolerate such moves and stand by the workers in their legitimate protest movement,” he added.
He recalled that PPP has the distinction of always protecting the interests of workers by bringing in labour reforms but Nawaz Sharif government seems to be selling with one hand and buying with the other the profit-making units perhaps for opening up more offshore companies.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari assured the Port Qasim dockworkers of full support from the PPP and their issues would be raised at every available forum. “PPP won’t leave them alone in their just struggle,” he added.
