KARACHI: Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui on Thursday directed secretary Regional Transport Authority (RTA) to make it compulsory for public transport to add an extra step for the ease of people with less height.
“Interior Department Sindh would be requested to give exemption to little people from pillion riding ban,” Siddiqui said while addressing a meeting with the delegation of people with less height at the Commissioner Office to discuss travelling issues faced by them.
These people said they had complaints against public transporters. The steps of buses were so high that they had to face trouble climbing them.
“We even do not get some specific place for sitting or standing. Bus drivers and conductors avoid giving us ride, due to which we would daily reach late at our destinations,” they complain.
The commissioner said these little people were great in dignity and they productive persons of our society. He ensured them for resolution of their complaints.
Deputy Director Social Welfare Department Riaz Fatima, Secretary Transport RTA Manshad Ali, President Little Peoples of Pakistan (LPP) Kamran Ahmed Shah, Vice President LPP Ali Arsalan, Usman and Naqash were also present on the occasion.
