On Thursday, the Chairman of the Multan fruit and vegetables market Akram Chawan stated that the market was facing acute staff shortages. It needs new recruitment to ensure its functionality.
Akram Chawan underlined the need for the staff working in two shifts at the market, but added that staff shortages and fixed duty hours were hampering efforts for the market’s cleanliness and other matters.
According to Chawan, 320 license holders and 210 allied shops were operating in the fruit and vegetables market adding that it handles approximately entry/exit of around 150 goods vehicles on a daily basis besides countless retailers who visit it daily for their retail businesses.
Chawan told urdupoint.com that cleaning operations have been delegated to a solid waste management company, adding that the company will send in 25 sanitary workers and machinery on a daily basis. This deployment, however, remained available only during the first shift and fewer workers are available in the second shift.
