KARACHI - Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has assured the differently-abled persons of providing them with government jobs in April for which he has issued necessary directives to the Sindh Chief Secretary to expedite the process. He said this while holding a meeting with the representatives of differently-abled persons on Tuesday here at the Chief Minister House, said a press release.

He said that there was a two per cent quota for disabled persons in the government jobs which he had enhanced to five per cent.

“We are not giving you any favour but it is your right to lead a respectable life and become effective citizen, this is why I am holding sixth meeting with you today,” he said.

The disabled persons thanked the chief minister for his support and personal interest.

The CM Sindh just after holding a meeting with the differently-abled persons held another meeting with ministers, Jam Mehtab Dahar and Dr. Sikandar Mendhro and Chief Secretary Rizwan Memon as well as secretaries of different departments.
