His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, directed the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) to cut down part of a mountain in Al Harai area in Khor Fakkan, to make it easier for the residents of the area opposite the mountain to build their houses, so that they are not harmed by rainwater.

Sheikh Sultan’s directives came in direct response to one of the callers to the “Direct Line” programme, aired on Sharjah Radio and Television Authority, with mediaperson Mohammed Khalaf, who announced during the programme that the Human Resources Department employed 300 male and female job seekers during the first four months of 2024, 44 of whom were employed in SEWA.

Khalaf pointed out that employment is done on a daily basis in Sharjah.

On Monday, Sheikh Sultan approved requests for a thousand housing units for citizens in the Al Qutaina 3 and Al Shanof 4 complexes, which will be ready within two years.

He also instructed the authorities concerned to build a shaded market in the Mleiha in response to a female caller.

He also responded to another female caller who had a problem with a federal entity and reassured her that he would resolve it.

The Sharjah Department of Housing plans to inform the beneficiaries accordingly via text messages at intervals this week.

Sheikh Sultan approved the applications of 50 citizens to get ready-made government housing in Al Qutaina 1 residential complex in Mahdub suburb after completing their papers.

Messages to this effect will be sent to them and the houses will be ready within a year.

He also instructed the department to count the number of defaulters in their housing projects and solve their problems.
