De­plorable Malir Road

MA­SOOD NABI KHAN

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

The prob­lems of the peo­ple us­ing Malir Road have be­come more acute dur­ing the month of Ra­mazan be­cause of the re­pair work. In peak hours in the morn­ings and evenings, traf­fic is just stuck there and the de­lays be­come tax­ing. In­stead of fa­cil­i­ta­tion in this holy month, the peo­ple face un­told mis­eries but no one lis­tens to their ap­peals.

The Malir Road is an im­por­tant link be­tween the main city and some of the most im­por­tant in­dus­trial ar­eas such as Port Qasim and Landhi. Con­sid­er­able rev­enue is gen­er­ated by th­ese sec­tors and a good many peo­ple are em­ployed by the in­dus­tries. It is strange that main­te­nance and re­pairs of the Malir Road are tak­ing so long and the labour­ers and of­fice work­ers are suf­fer­ing. The city ad­min­is­tra­tion that is looking af­ter the Malir Road re­pair work needs to pay at­ten­tion and find a quick so­lu­tion to all this suf­fer­ing. They should at least pay due heed to the sanc­tity of Ra­mazan. — Karachi
