AMANULLAH KHAN KARACHI—Sheikh Khalid Tawab (S.I), Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent (SVP), Fed­er­a­tion of Pak­istan Cham­bers of Com­merce & In­dus­try (FPCCI) has urged the Fed­eral Min­is­ter for In­te­rior, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to re­lease all the cargo loaded ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing ex­portable goods, en­route to and from Karachi port im­pounded by the ad­min­is­tra­tion to block the en­trance to­wards Is­lam­abad and en­sure un­in­ter­rupted sup­ply of raw ma­te­rial to the in­dus­try, meet­ing ex­port or­ders well in time and avoid short­age of con­sumer goods to the masses.

The FPCCI SVP elab­o­rated that the coun­try’s ex­port are al­ready on de­cline and this would fur­ther ag­gra­vate the sit­u­a­tion, fear­ing can­cel­la­tion of vi­tal ex­port or­ders as the goods were not reach­ing the ports. The FPCCI SVP re­called that pre­vi­ously also a large num­ber of ve­hi­cles were de­tained for the same pur­pose which were af­ter­ward burnt, looted and damaged and the busi­ness com­mu­nity in gen­eral and the goods trans­porters in par­tic­u­lar suf­fered heavy losses and said that the same sit­u­a­tion might not be arisen again.
