Lyari should not be treated like Waziristan: Nadia Gabol

Sindh Minister for Human Rights Nadia Gabol has said Lyari Town needs development works instead of an operation and it should not be treated like Waziristan.
Talking to various delegations of Lyari at her office, she said all commitments were made with people of Lyari should soon be fulfilled.
She said jobless youths and people would also be given jobs in order to curb unrest persisting in the area. Lyari is the oldest town amongst all 18 towns of the metropolis, Nadia Qabol noted.
The minister stated that two percent of elite class has deprived 98 per cent people belonging to poor and middle classes from their rights. She said if poor people do not come foward to attain their rights, they would not get rid of the slavery. However, she said downtrodden people should combat themselves for their legal rights.
The government, she said, is fulfilling its obligation by initiating various development projects in Lyari Town worth millions of rupees besides building infrastructure, installations of streetlights and laying sewerage lines, which would facilitate local people.
She appealed to Sindh Chief Minister and Sindh Governor to take prompt notice for establishing peace in Lyari.
