President Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry Junaid Esmail Makda has advised the aggrieved affectees of the ongoing anti-encroachment drive in the city to submit their complaints along with legitimate documents and evidences so that the Karachi Chamber could take up their grievances with relevant authorities.
In a statement issued, President KCCI said that the Karachi Chamber has been receiving dozens of complaints each day in which many complainants have been claiming of possessing legal shops which were also razed by Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) during its anti-encroachment drive in several areas of the city.
In this regard, President KCCI said that all complaints must carry solid evidences about the legality and ownership of shops so that KCCI could effectively defend their cases in front of relevant authorities and ensure proper compensation to them.
Reiterating KCCI’s commitment under its policy of Public Service, Junaid Makda assured that the Chamber would make sincere efforts to ensure that no injustice is suffered by the genuine affectees due to anti-encroachment drive.
He said that the Karachi Chamber would like to play a vital role in provision of alternate places to genuine affectees of anti-encroachment drive as per commitment made Sindh Minister for Local Government Saeed Ghani and Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhter at a recent joint press conference. “This has to be done on top priority basis as it was a question of daily bread and butter for thousands of families who have become unemployed as their shops have been completely flattened and they have no other source of income”, he added.
