Karachi transport services have been suspended since 18 March 2020 when Sindh Government announced a lockdown on the directives of Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Irshad Bukhari argued at the press conference that even shopkeepers and businesses have been given permission to operate but transporters are still prohibited from resuming their services even though drivers and fare collectors are daily wage earners and their families are suffering from starvation because of the impact from the lockdown.

He further mentioned that there has been no relief package offered to the transporters even though they have been badly affected from the result of the coronavirus lockdown pointing that other businesses have received such packages.
