Karachi: Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari has directed the Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah to take immediate steps to rehabilitate the victims of Abbas Town blasts and provide them with apartments.
The president held a meeting with the Chief Minister, provincial ministers, and the chief secretary of Sindh at the Chief Minister House in Karachi on Friday and asked them to start relief efforts right away.
Regarding the allotment of apartments, the Sindh government was instructed that the relatives of the deceased should be preferred over other affectees.
On March 7, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah rejected the notion that government officials and police were busy at a dinner rather than tending to victims of the twin bombings in Abbas Town.
Twin blasts shook Shia-dominated Abbas Town, Karachi, on March 3, which left at least 50 dead and over 140 injured.
