PM Nawaz warns PIA employees to lose their jobs if protests not stopped

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif warned that PIA employees will lose their jobs or may face imprisonment if they continue their protests.

He said the workers who are performing their duties and are not part of the protests will be rewarded by the government.

The announcement came amid the recent protests held by some staff members against the privatisation of the national flag carrier.

On Tuesday, the protest took a violent turn in Karachi where security forces used water cannons and teargas to keep the protesting PIA employees from approaching the Jinnah International Airport before shots were fired.

According to a hospital official, two protesters died and eight others sustained injured due to clashes between protesters and law enforcing agencies (LEAs).
