Mobile CNIC service to resume soon

LARKANA: If determination to facilitate maximum number of people in getting their Computerized National Identity Cards (CNIC) swiftly is to attract highest numbers of voters, it is also a blessing in disguise for poor villagers who have neither facility nor resource to get it done on their own. The preparation is for local bodies’ elections which are to be announced shortly.

Executive Committee of PPP Larkana district is focussing on this issue for which their senior vice-president Dr Shafqat Soomro held a meeting with Col Khalid Khattak, Director General National Database Registration Authority on Saturday.

The participants questioned as to why Nadra had abruptly stopped sending mobile vans to different areas as it benefit especially those areas where people did not have an easy excess to the main office.

They also reminded the official that wrong entries, particularly the names of fathers and husbands contribute to problems during vote casting.

PPP’s district information secretary Asghar Shaikh told Dawn that DG Nadra had assured of resuming mobile vans service to remote areas, besides opening urgent counters without disturbing the regular services.

Dr Shafqat Soomro urged the PPP office-bearers to beef up their contacts with people for the upcoming local bodies’ elections.
