Engineers demonstrate in illegally occupied PoK, demand technical allowance

A large number of engineers carried out a peaceful rally in Muzaffarabad town of illegally occupied PoK to demand the technical allowance, which they say is being deliberately denied to them by the administration. They also issued an ultimatum saying that the intensity of their demonstrations would increase if the government didn't pay immediate heed to their demands. Engineers say that have been treated unfairly by successive regimes despite their selfless and tireless work for the development of the region. Pakistan, which claims the region of its own, has given similar allowances to engineers in its provinces but has turned a blind eye to the demands of these men. All they are asking is a 1.5% technical allowance of their salary as per the 2017 pay scale.
