Larkana administration failed to provide relief to the people in Ramzan

July 16, 2014

Bachat Bazaars set up by the Larkana administration has failed to provide relief to the people, as all the essential commodities were not available there. Bachat Bazar proved to be a political shop to project the political party, MNA Muhammad Ayza Soomro inaugurated the Bachat Bazar but after his departure traders removed stalls.

It is pertinent to mention that the DC Larkana had announced to start Bachat Bazaars thorough out the month of Ramazan to provide all the essential items to people on control rates but the wheat, flour, sugar and several other daily use items were not available in the stalls of Bachat Bazaar set up at Jinnah Bagh.

Moreover the people preferred to purchase fresh vegetables and other food items from routine market on more cheap rates, because there was no much difference in the rates of Bachat Bazaar and daily markets.

The people from different areas of the Larkana arrived in Bachat Bazaar to purchase subsidized items particularly flour as announced by the Sindh government which include flour 10 kg bag at 310, sugar Rs 49 per kg, oil Rs 142 per litre and several other items but the people were disappointed when they saw that all stalls were empty and nothing was available for them to purchase from Bachat Bazaar, ultimately they returned back to their homes with empty hands.

It is pertinent to be mentioned here that all the stalls were removed before the stipulated time because of non-availability of public demand items. Particularly, the business community in Larkana also did not respond to establish their stalls in the Bachat Bazar during the month of Ramazan.

On the occasion, the people of Larkana including Hussain Bux Abbasi, Rasheed Ahmed Jokhio, Gul Hassan Sandeelo, Zoheb Ahmed, Waheed Ali Shaikh, Niaz Chandio and others expressed dissatisfaction over the poor arrangements at Bachat Bazaar, and they said that setting up of Bachat Bazaars were a joke with the poor people and the masses cannot be befooled by these Bachat Bazaars.

The peoples said that the idea of Bachat Bazaars was good but due to the lack of cooperation the authorities, it could not be properly materialised and ultimately Bachat Bazaars failed to deliver.
