Speaking at the occasion, Sheikh Amir Waheed, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry said that the issue of new rent control act was likely to be included in the Feb 14th agenda of National Assembly and hoped that new rent would soon be promulgated in the federal capital. Showing great concerns over the abduction of trader Rehmat Khan from Super Market, he called upon the IGP Islamabad and the local administration to help in his early recovery. He stressed that ICCI and concerned market should always be taken on board before taking any action against any trader. He stressed that Islamabad police should immediately recover the abducted trader.
