According to the Dawn, many employees feel that their salary structure was not consistent with their counterparts in the four provinces of the country, and they had not been getting conveyance, house rent, medical and other allowances at par with Federal Government employees based in Islamabad.

The government employees in the region said they had pinned great hopes with the presidential tour that their slashed allowance of Gilgit Compensatory Allowance would be restored, but much to their disappointment no such decision was made.

The paper quoted them as saying that the low-grade employees were hard hit after slash of this allowance, which paid to them at the rate of Rs450 per month.

They came down heavily on the members of the Northern Areas Legislative Council for not putting forward their demands to the President, saying the members only spoke for their own perks and privileges. (ANI)
