President North Karachi Association of Trade & Industry (NKATI), Faisal Moiz Khan, while expressing deep concern over the encroachment in the industrial area and the increasing illegal activities of the occupation mafia, and demanded Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Minister Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain to end the encroachments and immediate action against occupation mafia.
In a statement, Faisal Moiz said that the encroachments in the North Karachi industrial area were continuously increasing, and the occupiers don’t feel any fear in establishing encroachments on the main roads as well, due to which the wide roads leading to the industries were narrow.
This was causing delays in the supply of raw materials to factories as well as shipment of goods from export industries to ports.
NKATI President said, ‘’Several requests were made to the administration to end the encroachments, but no steps were taken to end the encroachments in practice, nor were any warnings given to the perpetrators of the encroachments.
Due to which the industrial community is facing severe difficulties as the delivery of raw materials to the factories and delivery of other products including export goods are also getting delayed due to which they are facing losses.’’
Faisal Moiz Khan appealed to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Minister Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain to issue directives for eliminating the encroachments in North Karachi industrial area, and to play their role, also issue orders to the relevant institutions for immediate action so that industrial activities can continue without interruption.
