The minister also announced that the workers would be paid Rs3,000 as an honorarium if the project is completed timely. However, undeterred by the minister’s offer, the workers kept raising slogans demanding that their services be regularized.
The workers also surrounded the minister’s vehicle. Afterwards, Sheikh Rasheed assured the protesters of “doing something for them”.
