Laudable initiative: Transgender persons to help in crackdown against profiteers

in PAKISTAN, 12/01/2014

Commissioner Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui announced the formation of a special work force of 4,000 transgender persons to launch a crackdown against illegal price hiking which started in Ramzan.

Siddiqui announced this while talking to a delegation of Transgender Welfare Alliance (TWA) in his office on Saturday. The commissioner said that the decision to include transgender people in the drive will have the dual benefit of helping the crackdown and providing a respectful profession for them.

“The special work force will raid bazaars and markets with the help of divisional establishment,” he said.

The commissioner further added that transgender people are working at 973 different traffic signals in the city and the commissioner office will encourage them to play a role in benefitting themselves as well as general society as a whole.
