Journalists’ problems to be resolved as per govt policy: CS
Karachi: Chief Secretary Sindh Sajjad Saleem Hotiana has assured the office-bearers of the Karachi Press Club (KPC) that the journalists’ problems will be resolved in accordance with the government policy.
He expressed these views while talking to a KPC delegation led by its President Imtiaz Khan Faran on Wednesday. Director Public Relations Naukhaiz Anwar Siddiqui was also present. Souvenirs from both the sides were also exchanged on the occasion.
The KPC team requested to ameliorate the journalists’ community from the issues of Journalists Housing Colony at Hawksbay where development work was initiated in 2002, but the colony needs further development. The colony was established in 1996 on the move of former chief minister Sindh Abdullah Shah.
Imtiaz Khan Faran also suggested setting up a press club within the premises of the Journalists Colony at Hawksbay, for which space was already available there. KPC Governing Body members Arbab Chandio and Irshad Khokhar proposed construction of an auditorium at the large parking area of KPC for which the government’s assistance was required.
Sajjad Saleem Hotiana sympathetically heard the issues, and assured full cooperation to this effect.
He also called a report on the status of Journalists Colony at Hawksbay within three days.
The KPC delegation included Joint Secretary Shams Keerio and GB members Sohail Rafeeq and Jamshed Gul.
