As the lockdown has been extended by the Sindh government, KTI (Karachi Transport Ittehad) has asked Murad Ali Shah Chief Minister Sindh to grant permission to bring back their buses on the roads.
The KTI President Irshad Bukhari wrote a letter to the CM Sindh in which he demanded to allow the transporters to resume their transport services all over the province.
The letter said that the transporters are facing financial crises and it is getting difficult for them to survive in the extended lockdown.
On April 28th, a delegation of Karachi Transport Ittehad asked Saeed Ghani the Minister for Sindh Education either to allow the transporters to bring their buses back on the roads or proclaim relief packages for them during the lockdown.
The delegation was led by KTI President Irshad Bukhari who told the Provincial Minister about every single problem and issues the transporters are facing because of the lockdown.
The president also asked the provincial government to provide them with SOPs (Standard Operation Procedures) so that they can continue their business activities.
Education Minister Saed Ghani denied permission by saying that the government is taking all safety measures to save people’s lives and there is no way of taking any risks which can lead to the spread of the virus.
He further said that the Paramedical staff and the doctors are making a lot of effort to save other people’s lives and not thinking about themselves for once.
