KARACHI: The Sindh cabinet on Tuesday approved the ‘Sindh Protection Against Harassment of Women at Workplace Bill, 2018’, directing the chief minister’s adviser on law to go through its clauses and table in the assembly for approval, a private TV channel reported.

The purpose of the bill, presented by the Women Development Department, is to make provision for the protection of women against harassment at their respective workplaces and address their issues through a legal framework. Women Development Department Secretary Baqaullah Unar apprised the participants about the salient features of the bill.

The meeting chaired by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah approved a poverty reduction package worth Rs 72.5 billion under which interventions would be made in education, health and water and sanitation sectors and the development of village roads. The planning and development department, with the assistance of EU, has prepared the poverty reduction strategy under which rural and urban poverty would be reduced by making necessary interventions. The villages would be given roads, water supply and drainage schemes, health facilities and vocational training. The chief minister said the programme will cover whole of the province.
