KARACHI: Businessmen Group Chairman and former KCCI president Siraj Kassam Teli demanded the Prime Minister of Pakistan to provide security and safety to the business and industrial community as well as the Karachiites from the criminal elements.
In a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif at Governor House Karachi, Kassam Teli said, “Karachi is a goose laying golden eggs and everyone wants to snatch these eggs whether it is an individual, political party, law enforcing agency, tax collecting agency or other group. The criminal and unscrupulous elements of the society want to kill this goose.”
Teli stated that the Businessmen Group of KCCI, representing over 90 per cent business and industrial communities of Karachi, had been constantly raising their voices and suggesting corrective measures to control law & order situation for the last many years, but in vain.
He lamented, “All the law enforcing agencies and the government of the day just keep on assuring the industrialists and traders but to no avail.” He demanded extraordinary measures to maintain law and order in the city.
