Jameel Yusuf said we are collectively work for the resolve of issues pertaining to Environment, Special education, Prisons, etc through playing an individual role towards CSR.
He further said that during the short tenure of the caretaker Government setup, we are gathered here to short list the social issues towards resolving in collaboration of the government agencies and organization to get better results. Civil society must raise their voice and get due share in media to highlight and resolve such issues.
Laws are there, but implementation is very poor, no body followed it to enforce these laws, we have to change the laws with the support of civil society recommendations and suggestions for the betterment of common men. Civil society and media could together play their positive role to help out us in this regard.
