After seeing the appeal, CM stayed at the scene for a short time and bought soft drinks for himself and his entourage. After paying the elderly hawker, CM recognized himself and asked the people who had been bothering him.
The soft drink seller said he was disturbed by the police and the local government. CM immediately called another deputy chief and senior superintendent in the eastern district, as well as the administrator of the Karachi Metropolitan Company, and instructed them not to disturb the supplier.
CM ordered senior officials to buy soft drinks from the elderly every time they visited the area because he realized that the elderly was earning a living for the family members in the family through honest means.
