Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—Gov­er­nor Sindh Dr. Ishrat ul Ebad Khan has said that ad­e­quate se­cu­rity ar­range­ments had been made for shop­pers in city’s mar­kets so as to en­sure Eid shop­ping with ut­most peace of mind and with­out any fear. This he said while talk­ing to me­dia men at Clifton after an ex­ten­sive visit of City’s mar­kets and shop­ping malls to in­spect se­cu­rity ar­range­ments and en­quire from shop­pers about their prob­lems.

A state­ment on Satur­day said that Sindh Home min­is­ter, An­war Siyal, Com­mis­sioner Karachi, Ai­jaz Ahmed Khan, and Ad­di­tional I.G. Karachi, Mushtaq Me­har also ac­com­pa­nied the Gov­er­nor Sindh. It said that he vis­ited the mar­kets of Tariq Road, Hy­deri, Naz­imabad, Sad­dar and Clifton and talked to shop­pers and traders and asked about se­cu­rity and other ar­range­ments.

They re­marked it was a pleas­ant sur­prise to see the Gov­er­nor among them and ap­pre­ci­ated his con­cern for the se­cu­rity of the masses.

At Hy­deri rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Bohri com­mu­nity com­plained that light in their area was off for the last three days. Gov­er­nor Sindh im­me­di­ately con­tacted the K-Elec­tric au­thor­i­ties and the elec­tric­ity to the lo­cal­ity was re­stored within half an hour due to his in­ter­ven­tion. The peo­ple of the area thanked Gov­er­nor Sindh for re­solv­ing their prob­lem with­out any de­lay. Gov­er­nor Sindh while talk­ing with me­dia men said that the pur­pose of his visit was to see the se­cu­rity ar­range­ments him­self at var­i­ous places and ask the con­sumers about the same and any other prob­lem be­ing faced by them.

He said that due to the stren­u­ous and un­tir­ing ef­forts of per­son­nel of Law En­force­ment Agen­cies, the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion has im­proved con­sid­er­ably and the rush of peo­ple in mar­kets is the recog­ni­tion of their achieve­ments in this re­gard.

To a ques­tion re­gard­ing Amjad Sabri and Owais Shah in­ci­dents, Gov­er­nor Sindh said that in­ves­ti­ga­tions in both the cases are pro­gress­ing in right di­rec­tion and we will hear good news in these cases very soon. Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion re­gard­ing stag­nant wa­ter after re­cent rains in city streets, Gov­er­nor Sindh said that lo­cal bodies had made ar­range­ments to clear rain wa­ter but it was seen on roads in few lo­cal­i­ties which is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated. After re­lease of funds for clean­ing of big drains, the same would be started soon to en­sure un­in­ter­rupted flow of rain wa­ter through them, he said and added that en­croach­ment and sewage were two im­por­tant prob­lems of Karachi which should be tack­led with a com­pre­hen­sive plan.

To a ques­tion re­gard­ing street and other crimes in Ra­mazan, Gov­er­nor Sindh said that Home Min­is­ter and his team were do­ing an ad­mirable job to get rid the so­ci­ety from crim­i­nals. Dr. Ebad said that de­vel­op­ment is the pri­or­ity after im­prove­ment in law and or­der sit­u­a­tion. The work on north bound track of Lyari Ex­press Way (LEW) which has been res­tarted after a gap of eight years, is pro­gress­ing well while the most vi­tal K-4 project has also been started, he con­cluded.—APP
