GHOTKI: Leading human rights activist Advocate Rashid Noonari giving a wake-up call to the people of Khanpur Mahar a Taluka of district Ghotki and its adjoining areas has said that our district is facing countless issues that will take us to an unceasing disaster and it will take us decades to come out of that quagmire.
He said that incidents of kidnapping for ransom, poor law and order situation, lack of health care facilities, and poor standard of education were the core issues of this area that had not been resolved for the past two decades adding that the elected representatives were taking no cognizance of these issues.
“I wonder why the common man of this area is tight-lipped over the usurpation of his rights and non-provision of the basic amenities by the authorities concerned; he said. Their silence over the prime issues of the area would turn things from bad to worse; He warned.
He said that; People should know that the government officials were taking their salaries through their tax money and they had all right to ask from the authorities concerned where the budget issued for their areas was being spent.

He revealed that; he had written a letter to the Divisional Chief Information Commissioner under Sindh Transparency and Right to Information Act 2016 seeking details regarding the budget issued during the past two decades.
The change was only possible when the people were aware of their rights, he said, adding that the time had arrived when the executive heads of all the departments had to answer the questions of the subjugated masses.
He announced a phase-wise campaign to wake the people of Khanpur Mahar Taluka and its adjoining areas up for their legitimate rights.
