The News reported that after a meeting with Russian delegation, led by Adviser Mr Andrey Zubal, on the request of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Russian experts have agreed to submit their proposals for modernisation of the Pakistan Steel Mills. The chief minister said the Russian government had constructed a huge project of Steel Mills in Karachi. Now, the mills needed not only to be overhauled but also had to be modernised to fulfil the present steel production requirements. The delegation decided to send their team to visit the mills to assess the requirements for its modernisation.
The meeting decided to take up the modernisation of the steel project on a priority basis as its feasibility and mode would be studied and shared with the provincial government.
The chief minister said he has already constituted a provincial ministers’ committee to study the issues of the mill and recommend solution to its problems. Mr Murad said with the closure of the mill, the employment of a large number of its employees had been affected badly. He said “The mill was established with the personal efforts of the-then Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and we want it to flourish.”
