PESHAWAR: Employees’ protest over pay cuts has once again disrupted the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa capital.
Employees of a private company affiliated with the Peshawar BRT – also known as Trans Peshawar – have claimed that their salaries have been slashed by between Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 10,000.
Angry employees went on strike at Peshawar BRT stations against pay cuts and suspended services, causing inconvenience to passengers.
‘Action will be taken’
On the other hand, Trans Peshawar spokesperson Umair Khan denied that there was any suspension in the BRT service, saying that the protesting employees of a private company had “ended their strike”.
“The strikers are employees of a private company,” Khan explained. He added that Transformers had nothing to do with it.
However, the spokesman warned of action against the private company.
“Action will be taken as per our agreement with the private company,” he said. He further said that BRT service for the citizens has been fully restored.
