The meeting was chaired by Mir Ghulam Rasool Butwani chief patron of the organization. He said there is a lot of public resentment over rising corruption and price hike which are eating the vitals of the society.
He said a particular section of people are ruling the roost and amassing a huge wealth by misleading the public opinion. He urged the working class to be ready for a protracted struggle.
Accusing the Government of suppressing the trade union rights, he said the working force was compelled to give two days strike call all over country recently.
