Rauf Siddiqui resigns over Karachi factory fire

Sindh Minister for Industry and Commerce Rauf Siddiqui on Friday tendered his resignation over the recent factory fire that claimed 258 lives in Karachi.
Speaking to media representatives in Karachi, the provincial minister and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) announced that he had tendered his resignation.
Siddiqui said he had dispatched his resignation to Sindh Governor Ishratul Ebad and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah.
The MQM minister has demanded that all those responsible for the tragic incident should be brought to justice.
At least 258 workers perished in the horrific fire that destroyed the garment factory in Karachi, an unprecedented industrial tragedy that prompted calls for an overhaul of poor safety standards.
On Thursday, rescue workers at the gutted factory wrapped up their operation after battling the deadly fire for almost 45 hours.

    Resignation is not the proper solution, has Government decided to inspect "Safety & Security Measure" at all such factories??

    There are concern department & authorities but most of the employees are ghost, they do not bother to inspect such important things. They do nothing but take salaries & other fringe benefits out of our taxes also they make money if they inspect the factories & found some thing out of order!!!!
