ISLAMABAD: The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) Wednesday opposed the decision taken by the federal government regarding the five-day-long Eid ul Adha holiday.
In a statement, the FPCCI said the five-day Eid holiday was “not a good decision”.
The FPCCI said the country is in deficit, therefore, banks should remain open on Saturdays and the government should withdraw the notification regarding the five-day holiday.
Last week, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif approved a holiday of five days for Eid ul Adha. According to a statement from the Prime Minister's Office, the premier approved Eid ul Adha holidays from July 8 to 12.
It should be noted that Eid ul Adha in Pakistan will be observed on July 10 (Sunday).
