SADIQABAD - The All Pakistan Clerks Association leaders of Rahim Yar Khan have demanded Bakra allowance ahead of Eidul Azha.

Apca Rahim Yar Khan President Muhammad Boota, Secretary General Mehboob Khan, Abdul Khaliq and Sajjad Haider demanded that the government should immediately announce the allowance to provide some amusement to the public sector employees on the Eid so that they could perform the religious obligation easily.

They said that the everyday increasing prices of commodities have made the poor's life miserable and the purchase of daily use items has become very difficult for them. They recalled that on Eidul Fitr too, the government disappointed the employees and did not announce Eidul Fitr allowance. 

They said that to run the present government, the clerks were playing a key role by discharging their duties diligently and honestly. So, not to provide relief to them on the occasion would be unjust, they said.

The Apca leaders urged the federal and the provincial governments to immediately announce the Bakra allowance for the clerks.
