Murad wants all markets, shops closed 7pm KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that he has decided to develop a system under which all business activities, including shops and markets would start functioning from the morning to evening. “This is the system which operates all over the world.”
Addressing a programme, organised by the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry on Wednesday, the chief minister said that breaking the old habit he as a chief minister has started his day early in the morning, followed by his cabinet members and bureaucracy and now the businessmen and traders have to follow it by opening their shops and markets at 9am and close by 6pm or 7pm.
“I need your support for the purpose because I know the actual resistance could come from your side,” he said addressing the office-bearers of chambers.
Mr Murad also announced proper timings for” Shadi halls” and to start one-dish policy for valima/marriage functions. “The concept is to reduce the financial burden of poor people,” he said.
