The newly appointed Commissioner of Karachi, Shoaib Ahmad Siddiqui, whose affinity for sports is widely known, has vowed to motivate the multinationals and corporations to participate actively in the promotion of sports.


“It’s very heartening to know that Jubilee General Insurance and Jubilee Life Insurance have been supporting the game of snooker for a long time. I would urge the other organizations to take the cue from them and lend a helping hand to sports in more proactive manner,” he remarked during the media briefing of the Jubilee Insurance 29th Asian Snooker Championship 2013 at the Sheraton Karachi Hotel on April 25. 

“The government is quite eager to develop the culture of sports. But the sponsorship support is also needed to sustain the sports activities. We are going to urge the corporate sector to turn their attention towards sports through their CSR programmes,” Shoaib Siddiqui, who served as the Secretary Sports and Youth Affairs to the Government of Sindh for quite sometime, added.
