KARACHI: This is with reference to news reports in which the administrator of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) declared that the KMC is making all out efforts for the welfare of the visually impaired.
I, being a colleague of a visually impaired employee of the KMC, want to invite the attention of the administrator to redress the financial hardship of Mr Salman Jang, who is a lower grade staff member in the revenue and resource section. He has to pay more than half his monthly salary to a taxi driver who provides a conveyance facility to him from his home in Malir to his office at the Civic Centre. I hope the administrator would devise a conveyance policy for such special employees, making it easier for them to commute between their homes and office in gratis.
