The nonpermanent employees from Sindh province will stage a protest demonstration outside the press club, Karachi today (Sunday). According to the provincial central leader of NADRA’s action committee Malik Sajjad, Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani during his visit to the central office of the authority in Islamabad had announced to regularize the services of temporary employees. However, the decision has so far not been implemented.
