Keeping in mind the current situation of market and increasing problems faced by our committee
members, we felt the need to relocate the market from Jodia Bazaar to an spacious location, where we face no hindrance doing our business and members have facility available to them, and the
business can prosper. For the implementation of this idea, the managing committee for the first time established land committee under my chairman ship.
We met higher official of government, honorable prime minister and governor of Sindh and officers of the market committee in order to obtain spacious piece of land for the development of a new market.
And demanded a 750-1000 acre of land near the super highway or northern bypass and we also demanded that the market should be facilitated keeping in mind the next 100 years. This market should be accommodate with shops, offices,
warehouses, pulse mills, rice mills, trucks stands, banks, police station, housing colony, hospital, security and all the infrastructure necessary for business. Our appeal was considered valuable and a positive attitude was shown.
We were assured by the government official that they will soon consult the revenue department and contact us, and where ever possible we would be given large piece of land for the development of market.
I would like to acknowledge the efforts of Mr. Aftab-Ur- Rehman Guddi and all the officials for their support and cooperation in struggle of obtaining this piece of land.
