Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui,
I would like to inform you that grievances of transporters have not yet been redressed by the authorities concerned despite your assurance to the transporters’ bodies regarding solving of their problems as soon as possible.
Through this letter, I would like to draw your kind attention towards the burning issues faced by the transporters due to which they had called a prolonged strike in November, which was later called off with the intervention of Federal Minister for Finance Mohammad Ishaq Dar.
Although, the Federal Minister for Finance assured the redressal of the transporters’ issues during the meeting with the heads of different transporters’ bodies at the Governor House, but the issues pertaining to the closure of Mai Kolachi Road for heavy vehicles and confiscating the containers and vehicles of transporters by police on big occasions still exist.
The representatives of transporters’ bodies want to hold an emergent meeting with you in order to present their grievances.
Haji Anwar Khan Niazi
