KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has on Friday left to perform Umrah in Saudi Arabia.
Prior to his departure while chairing a high level meeting in Karachi to review the security arrangements, he has directed the concerned authorities to make foolproof security arrangements for the safety of people during Eid ul Fitr holidays.
The chief minister asked the law enforcing agencies to remain alert and increase snap checking and patrolling to avoid any untoward incident.
He asked to keep special focus on sensitive areas and installations and public areas including shopping centers, masjids, imambargahs, railway stations and bus stands.
Qaim directed inspector general Sindh to make progress in the high-profile cases of famed qawwal Amjad Sabri’s muder and abduction of chief justice of Sindh High Court’s son.
“I am hopeful to hear positive news in this regard while in Saudi Arabia,” he said.
He also directed Chief Secretary Sindh Muhammed Siddique Memon to pay special attention towards drainage system, cleaning rainwater drains and provision of water and electricity in Karachi and Hyderabad.
“The commissioner Karachi and administrator Karachi should ensure cleanliness of rainwater drains, free water tanker service and water supply from Hub dam to Karachi,” he said.
He also appealed the residents of Sindh to pray for peace and prosperity of the country.
The chief minister would return home on July 05 after performing Umrah.
