SHARJAH: The Pakistan Consulate in Dubai and Northern Emirates has issued an order to form a new ad-hoc body comprising six members to run the day-to-day affairs of Pakistan Social Centre Sharjah (PSCS).
Chaudhry Khalid Hussain was appointed new president and the other members include Jameel Ishaq Khan, Safeer Satti, Chaudhry Iftikhar Ahmed, Rafiq Nasir and Shareef Afridi.
Talking to The Gulf Today, Hussain said that he have attained the charge of PSCS to deliver as the consulate expects him to.
“We are hopeful and with the support of the community in the Emirate of Sharjah will run the social centre to benefit the community,” he said.
The previous body, which was elected in 2009, completed their tenure in December in 2012 and was allowed to run the centre till recently as the election to bring new body was delayed without any known reason.
“It is the sole responsibility of the new ad-hoc body to start new membership from the first week of July besides scrutiny of audits, running the day-to-day affairs and looking into the welfare-related issues of community,” he said.
Talking to the media, a number of expatriates belonging to Pakistan expressed satisfaction on the formation of the new body to run the PSCS as for the past many months, the centre was not involved in any major activities for the community.
“There are a large number of Pakistani families residing in Sharjah and in the past they used to visit the centre to take part in different social programmes. But for over one year, we have not seen a single programme and only people from some political parties gathered to please their visiting party leaders,” complained Roshan Jamal, an expatriate residing in Al Nahda for the past three years.
