Pakistani lawmaker adopts unique way to highlight civic issues

Date:

KARACHI: A member of Sindh Assembly, Syed Abdul Rasheed from Lyari, a poor locality next to seaport, locked himself down in protest along with the area officers of the Water & Sewerage Board on Thursday.  

Abdul Rasheed, a senior office-bearer of Jamaat-e-Islami, secured the seat of the provincial assembly from Lyari, area known to be the stronghold of ruling Pakistan People’s Party general elections of 2018.

Rasheed posted a video message on social media after locking himself down in Karachi Water & Sewerage Board (KWSB) office along with area officials in which he said, “he protested against the corruption and not resolving the water and sewerage issues of Lyari people.”

“Officials claimed that they don’t have any authority to resolve area complaints,” Rasheed added.

MPA warned the govt that he will not unlock himself and other officials until the issues would be resolved.
