    If private sector is given a holiday, who will work (because actual working force is in private sector). Government knows most of the government servants are not working even on working days, So giving them a holiday, will not affect the country much or economy comparing to giving a national holiday.

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 06:57 AM

    What about Bank & Mecantile Peolpe? Please give holiday for them also. Thanks.

    ROSHAN Tuesday, 13 January 2015 09:38 AM

    Yes, i agree with that.. actual working force is in private sector

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 07:00 AM

    I was fully agree with comment of "UJ"

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 07:03 AM

    Is the victory only for public servents

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 07:08 AM

    We are in total agreement, pl. consider extending the holiday to the private sector as as well including banks

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 07:12 AM

    Thursday, 17 June 2010 07:13 AM
