Ombudsman Punjab took notice on a media report and said that nonpayment of salaries to employees of Population Welfare Department Sheikhupura was infact, worst kind of financial exploitation of the employees and their family members.
It is amazing that source of means of 104 families is ceased since 7 months and concerned are totally unmoved, observed Ombudsman Punjab. As per media report, the employees and their families are at the verge of starvation and their children are unable to continue their educational activities due to nonpayment of salaries.
