Hundreds of journalists based in Islamabad and Rawalpindi and others who arrived from various parts of the country had gathered at the National Press Club.

The minister assured the leaders that the government would move a summary for approval by the cabinet regarding the 8th Wage Board. She also promised to look into two of the other main demands of the protesters.
Besides the 8th Wage Board, the journalists were demanding legislation for workers of electronic media and an end to contract system in the industry.
