KARACHI: Sacked employees of Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) have called off their protests on Wednesday and relieved the blocked main railway track near Bin Qasim which suspended the rail traffic for many hours, ARY News reported.

He said the government will officially sit with PSM sacked-employee delegation for the protocols to raise their protests and demands to federal government.

Earlier on Tuesday. a large number of sacked employees of PSM blocked the main railway track near Bin Qasim, suspending the rail traffic for the last two hours.
As per details, the employees of PSM have staged a sit-in at the railway track near Bin Qasim against the sacking of their services by the federal government.
As a result, the up and down rail traffic is suspended, whereas Karachi Express and Sir Syed Express are waiting at the stations for clearance for the last two hours. The enraged protestors are urging the government to take back its decision to laying-off their services.
