Lahore:Special Assistant to CM Punjab on Health, Kh. Salman Rafiq has said that government employees are the backbone of official machinery and government provides services to the masses through them. He said that protest for the rights in a democratic system is acceptable but putting the life of others into danger is illegal and unethical.
These views were expressed by him while addressing a farewell party in honour of retired government employees at the committee room of Civil Secretariat, here today. Additional Scretary Welfare, Masood Mukhtar, APCA President Ghulam Mustafa Butt and a large number of government officers as well as officials were also present on this occasion. Syed Zaeem Qadri, specially participated as a guest of honour in the function. Kh. Salman Rafiq said that government employees serve the nation and the country for a long period of their life. He said those government employees who are earning 50-60 thousand rupees per month should realize how lower scale employees support their families. He said that we should work together for the progress and prosperity of the country instead of achieving personal interest. Kh. Salman said that efforts are being made at government level for evolving service structure for the government employees and the government, by remaining within its resources will take all possible steps for solving the problems of employees.
