you point us towards the deeper issues of Karachi here
when someone said this exact thing, I remember some Karachi guy saying, its a muhajir city and only their people can be voted in as mayor
This is the reason why city is where its at...
Ethnicity over your city
When people start taking care of their city, feel pride in it
Karachi will start to resemble Islamabad and if they don't learn it'll become Thar...
It is one of the reasons, but still not the full picture.
You cannot entirely blame a community, there were other factors involved in the devastation of this city.

I do not know what a Shoda is however for me any person who would take to put caps over drainage holes , or help clean up city deserves credit

Sign of Champion
  • Takes charge
  • Does not waits for a solution comes up with solution
  • Even if they can't solve 1,0000 thing they will attempt to solve 100 things based on their capacity
  • If he/she can't fix city they can at least fix their own street or neighborhood , cooperation with local neighbors

Mr. Mustafa Kamal did well during Musharraf's term as he had control to spend and clean up city, however due to reasons of being associated with Altaf Hussain , his reputation got tarnished

However Today Unfortunately such flexibility and cooperation does not exist between PPP and Karachi Seat winners, like it did during Musharraf Era
shoda is showoff, Mr Alamgir is/was in line of what Mr FVG and Dr Aamir Liaquat is. His aim was to get a seat, his motivation was ALWAYS questionable and so are/were his actions. That's my opinion, you may differ.

Murtaza Wahab is someone to keep an eye on IMHO, he was brought forward as urdu speaking face of PPP, that's a huge change, it shows that after decades PPP finally have realized that they cannot treat Karachi like crap and they HAVE to do something about the city (they might not like it, that's another story), With Wahab they cannot even say "oh but i wasn't getting cooperation from sindh government" from PTI side face of party can be Khurram, Aftab Siddiqui, Najeeb Haroon not showoff's like Vawda, Fixit and Dr Liaquat ....

ACCORDING to a model, this is how the Karachi Coastal Comprehensive Development Zone will look after the project’s completion on the reclaimed land of KPT. The sketch was shared by federal Maritime Affairs Minister Syed Ali Zaidi.
• Coastal comprehensive development zone to be established on KPT’s reclaimed land
• $3.5bn plan envisages new berths for port, new fishery port, harbour bridge to unlock Pakistan’s Blue Economy
• Centre calls the initiative a game-changer for Pakistan
KARACHI: Calling it a “game-changer”, the federal government on Saturday unveiled an ambitious plan to rebuild Karachi’s coastline under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with $3.5 billion “direct Chinese investment” that aims to overhaul city’s seaboard with new berths for the port, a new fishery port and a ‘majestic harbor bridge’ connecting it with Manora islands and Sandspit beach.
The Karachi Coastal Comprehensive Development Zone (KCCDZ) — spread over 640 hectares or 1,581 acres on the western backwaters marshland of the Karachi Port Trust (KPT) leading to revamp one of the oldest city slums Machhar Colony relocating its more than half a million population — is an initiative of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs.
The KCCDZ is the latest addition to CPEC projects aimed at providing Karachi with an ultra-modern urban infrastructure zone, placing it among the top port cities of the world.
The announcement came from the top when a key member of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet shared some details of the project and claimed it carried “enormous potential for global investors as well”.
“And the best thing of this project is that it’s solely based on foreign [Chinese] investment without any loan,” said Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Zaidi while speaking to Dawn.

“The Chinese work so fast and I guess that it would not take more than five or six years to complete the project. Under the agreed plan, we would relocate some 20,000 to 25,000 families from Machhar Colony and relocate them. Believe me it’s a huge thing for Pakistan. It’s something massive. It would bring multifold advantages to Pakistan’s maritime economy and further strengthen our coastal development.”
He said after assuming the office as the minister for maritime affairs he vigorously looked for the opportunity for the KCCDZ and made all-out efforts to include it in the CPEC projects. For this purpose, he added, he consulted a number of Chinese companies, investors, and officials of the neighboring country, and his efforts finally yielded results.
Earlier, the federal minister shared the “monumental decision” on a social media platform, coming up with sketchy details of the KCCDZ. He, however, did not explain the terms and conditions that convinced the Chinese investors to pour in $3.5 billion (around Rs592 billion).
“A monumental decision was taken during the 10th Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) on CPEC, held on 23rd September 2021 at Islamabad and Beijing,” Mr Zaidi tweeted while sharing a formal statement of the announcement.
“The two countries agreed to include KCCDZ under the CPEC framework. KCCDZ, an initiative of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs focuses on providing Karachi with an ultra-modern urban infrastructure zone, placing Karachi amongst the top port cities of the world.”
The minister also shared animated and picturesque images of a developed KCCDZ, showing a huge developed coastline dotted with multiple buildings, concrete structures, and planned neighborhoods without mentioning their utilities. He claimed all the developments would take place over the “reclaimed area of the KPT” spanning over huge 640 hectares or 1581.474 acres.
“Developed on a reclaimed area of approximately 640 hectares on the Western backwaters marshland of KPT, KCCDZ will be a flagship project for not only Pakistan but the entire region,” the statement claimed.
“In accordance with PM Imran Khan’s vision for promoting low-cost housing, KCCDZ will also provide residential resettlement to more than 20,000 families living in the surrounding slums. The environment-friendly mega KCCDZ envisages four new berths for KPT, adding depth to Pakistan’s expanding maritime sector.”
The project, the statement added, would also house a state-of-the-art fishing port, with a world-class fisheries export processing zone to boost Pakistan’s trade potential. It would also drastically improve the marine ecosystem and reduce pollution by establishing a water treatment plant at the mouth of the Lyari River, it said.
“The KCCDZ will connect with the rest of Karachi through a majestic harbor bridge rising from behind Pakistan’s Deepwater Port, with exit ramps for Manora Islands and Sandspit beach,” it elaborated.
The statement claimed KCCDZ would unlock “Pakistan’s unexplored Blue Economy and significantly enhance development and industrial cooperation between the two brotherly countries. The KCCDZ is a game-changer for Pakistan”.

Exactly karachi is divided into mahjir sindhi and pathan

So is the vote bank(20% seats go to PPPP)

other major cities(like e.g islamabad & peshawar) multiple ethncities dont sway votes to parties that are bad for them

But in karachi even if PPPP sells them. They will vote for them

Peshawar is mostly a Pashtun city and Islamabad is in Punjab and are fairly educated
so don't think its a valid comparison imo

Even in Lahore muhajirs and Kashmiris support PMLN but I don't think it'll be a fair comparison with Karachi
cause at its heart, its not a multi-ethnic city like Karachi
