Non Local UC’s Secretaries black mail Local females
Karachi: Citizens of Karachi have been paying Bhatta money to the UC Secretaries and other lower staff for having their basic Certificates issued from them. According to laws Birth , Marriage.Divorce and death Certificates are made by Union Councils of the related area for many years. But in the presence of UC Nazims Citizens were not facing such great difficulties, but now almost all the UCs have been creating troubles for the citizens, Daily thousands of Citizens are being forced to pay bhatta to the Sindhi secretaries of Unions Councils , as 95 percent UC Secretaries are Sindhis and they have been appointed in the Karachi areas, by depriving the rights of Locals.
Birth, Marriage, Divorce and Death Certificates are issued with the collaboration of NADRA, but every citizen is asked to visit UC Secretary Offices many times without any necessity just to linger on the process, UC staff which were appointed from the Sindh Unified Group of very lower scale have been asking citizens to give them thousands of rupees for giving them Birth or Divorced Certificates.
Many divorced females who go to obtain their Certificate of Divorce from the UCs are forced to visit multiple times to the UC Secretaries offices without any need, majority of females complained that they were asked to fulfill the immoral wishes of the UC’s Secretaries, many complained that they were being constantly getting the objectionable calls from the UC’s Secretaries, if they don’t fulfill the wishes of UC secretary then they are pressurized to a great extent and their divorced Certificate Is rejected to issue or it Is issued after many months.
UC Secretaries of East, Korangi, Malirs are active using these tactics, one female who went to have the divorce Certificate from the UC of Malir was forced to visit the UC secretary office many time and the concerned Secretary was using delaying tactics, when contacted by the Yahoo News the UC Secretary told that he has not receiving the NADRA papers for issuing the NADRA divorced Certificates so he could not issue these Certicates in time, but on the contrary the complainant female told Yahoo News that he saw many NADRA Papers in the Office of UC Secretary by her eyes!
Daily Yahoo News tried to contact the Administrator and Municipal Commissioner of Malir but he was not able to pick his cell phone and his office phone lines were also not attended by any body.
So it seems that Locals of Karachi are being left totally in the mercy of corruption , which is creating a great sense of deprivations among locals by every passing day
