Pakistan Railways has appointed a woman as station manager in Lahore for the first time in its history.
According to available details, Assistant Transport Officer, Syeda Marzia Al-Zahra has been given the additional charge of station manager at Lahore Railway Station.
Marzia Al-Zahra has replaced Station Master Lahore Cantt Younis Bhatti from his position and therefore has become the first-ever female station manager of Pakistan Railways.
On the other hand, the Railway Sampars Union has called for a protest against the appointment of CSP (Civil Services of Pakistan) officer for the post of the station manager.
Union Central Chairman Muhammad Irfan, while expressing reservations over the appointment, said that they would stage a protest if the notification was not canceled.
Pakistani women are really making history with their achievements.
Recently, Sheeba Shah from Shikarpur became the first female Inspector General (IG) of Pakistan.
Earlier in June, Major General Nigar Johar became Pakistan’s first female officer to be promoted to the rank of lieutenant general. The officer had also been appointed as the first female surgeon general of the Pakistan Army.
