President Korangi Association of Trade & Industry (KATI) Sheikh Umer Rehan has demanded of the government to allow all industries to reopen and remove lockdown restrictions from the entire sector.
He said that the industrialists cannot bear the burden of restrictions on industries and now they were on the verge of collapse.
He said prolonged lockdown restrictions could force thousands of medium and small manufacturing units and factories to close down permanently.He said that industry is the largest employment provider in the country and if it faced such conditions it would certainly affect the large part of our population.
"Keeping this situation in view authorities should allow all industries to work without any discrimination. If some of the industries can follow the SOPs why all the others cannot do the same?" he asked. Sheikh Umer Rehan said that the industrialists were more than ready to follow the SOPs.
