According to sources the KESC administration has postponed the dismissal of those not benefitting from the voluntary separation scheme.

It has been decided that non-core staff workers will not return to their duties until the dispute is completely resolved, and their salaries will be paid via a relief package.  They will also remain immune to attendance.

Union leaders have pledged their support to the KESC in continuing routine work at offices, while a commission will be formed within a week to settle all disagreements, including cases registered against the KESC workers.

Food for thought, if a normal Pakistani is not interested to invest in Pakistan, why would a foreigner invest in it. Specially, the situation created by this government in Pakistan and then look at the state what Karachi is in, how can businesses survive in such an environment.

And who will invest in this country where government encourages and supports mass public mayhem by workers involved in illegal strike?.
