The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Com­mis­sioner Karachi Asif Hy­der Shah has said that keep­ing in view the mas­sive size and di­verse eth­nic­ity of this city, it was a huge chal­lenge to deal with civic is­sues but ef­forts will be made to re­solve is­sues by reg­u­larly con­sult­ing with Karachi Cham­ber in or­der to pro­vide some re­lief to the Karachi­ites.

"Dur­ing my ten­ure as Com­mis­sioner which may last up to three to four months or may be more, I may not suc­ceed in re­solv­ing all is­sues but it will be my ut­most will­ing­ness to at least ef­fec­tively deal with any two to three ma­jor is­sues on long term ba­sis and bring them to an ir­re­versible level", he added while ex­chang­ing views with the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of busi­ness and in­dus­trial com­mu­nity of Karachi dur­ing his maiden visit to the Karachi Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (KCCI).

Chair­man Busi­ness­men Group & For­mer Pres­i­dent KCCI Siraj Kas­sam Teli, Vice Chair­men BMG and For­mer Pres­i­dents KCCI Tahir Khaliq, Zubair Moti­wala & An­jum Nisar, Pres­i­dent KCCI Younus Muham­mad Bashir, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent KCCI Zia Ahmed Khan, Vice Pres­i­dent KCCI M Naeem Sharif, For­mer Pres­i­dents KCCI AQ Khalil & Ab­dul­lah Zaki, Sen­a­tor Ab­dul Haseeb Khan, Haji Ghani Us­man and KCCI Man­ag­ing Com­mit­tee mem­bers were present at the meet­ing.

Re­fer­ring to con­cerns ex­pressed dur­ing the meet­ing, Com­mis­sioner Karachi said that he was cur­rently not in a po­si­tion to make any com­mit­ment but will try his best to re­solve is­sues high­lighted at the meet­ing. "I don't want to make any com­mit­ment right now as I don't want to face hu­mil­i­a­tion later on fail­ing to ful­fill my com­mit­ments due to any rea­son but I will try my best to re­solve is­sues. It will be one of my top pri­or­ity to re­gain con­fi­dence of Karachi­ites and bring it to a level where peo­ple should feel con­fi­dent about get­ting their is­sue re­solved to cer­tain ex­tent af­ter bring­ing it to the no­tice of Com­mis­sioner Of­fice or any of my sub­or­di­nate depart­ment", he added.
