The mayor said that Sehri is being provided to the residents and people who are in “Aitkaf” in different mosques from Khidmat e Khalq Foundation platform through Tohfae Sehri. He said that Ramadan is the month of blessings and its last 10 days demand us to serve the masses even more.

He said that Tohfae Iftar and Sehri program is being carried out in all towns. The volunteers who are serving the people are commendable. The KKF has restored its charity work and providing Iftar and Sehri at the people at their doorsteps. He said efforts have been taken to provide relief to the people hit by the Covid-19.

Akhtar said that business activities came to a halt due to coronavirus. Karachi had suffered a major blow and small traders and shopkeepers are protesting on closure of their activities. “The common people would get job opportunity only if the economy of Karachi flourishes,” he said and asked how the people would feed their families if business activities are halted.

Akhtar said that the Supreme Court gave relief to the small traders and labourers work in the markets and especially the wagers affiliated with different markets. He was of the view that instead of sealing the markets, the provincial government should have ensured implementation of standard operating procedures (SOPs) to protect jobs of the labourers.
