LAHORE: The All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) Punjab Zone will observe a black day on Wednesday the 14th of October to protest against the Punjab government not having accepted their demands.


Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Chairman APTMA Punjab, Amir Fayaz said the association had been conveying their reservations and grievances to the government for the last many months, but the government has done nothing besides offering comforting statements.
