Women say Nadra service inadequate

SAHIWAL: Residents of village 89/6-4 have demanded that a Nadra mobile van stay in the village till all women applicants get their computerised national identity cards (CNICs).

The mobile registration van has been in the village since Thursday for three days. In the first two days, 245 women got registered their data for the CNIC.

The representatives of non-government organisations Sujag, Aligarh Welfare Society and Free and Fair Election Network said on the first day 500 women turned up at the van, but only 170 women could fill their forms.

“The mobile van can only develop around 120 to 150 CNICs in a day,” said Ishtiaq Ahmad, van assistant manager. Alweera Rashid, Sujag representative, demanded the van’s stay be extended until all women get their cards.

A van official said though two days were reserved for males, but seeing the great rush of women, they had devoted all three days for women.
