    ‘PM approved Rs50bn for Karachi infrastructure development’


    Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved Rs50 billion for infrastructure development in Karachi to transform it into a developed and beautiful city, claimed Governor Imran Ismail on Friday.

    Addressing the inaugural ceremony of Pakistan Lifestyle Furniture Expo at the Expo Centre, the governor said that the city has to have a comprehensive master plan and implementation of rules and regulations to prevent future encroachments.

    According to him, the mayor of the city required Rs200 million for the removal of debris piled up due to the ongoing anti-encroachments drive. “The government of Sindh and Karachi mayor should work out modalities for removal of debris as well as garbage in the larger interest of the citizens and city itself.”

    The governor further said that meaningful talks were underway with the Sindh government regarding the Green Line Project and hoped buses of the project would begin running in the city within the next four to six months.

    He reiterated that he was working as a bridge between the federation and province and playing his constitutional and legal role in the larger interest of the province and country.

    Governor Ismail appreciated the standard and quality of locally-manufactured furniture and added that the furniture industry has the capacity and capability to expand to the international market. “The present government will extend every possible assistance to the furniture industry in increasing the volume of exports,” he said.

    Before any beatification begins spend money on regular trash collection, public bins, public toilets and an adequate sewer system with filtration plants.

    After that beautify to your hearts content.

    Karachi doesn't need beatification money, they need chitrol. laws on purification needs to be enforced with a stick. this goes for all of the country, if anyone litters needs to be beat for 2 days and put on community service for 2 weeks.

    This is hopefully the last term of ppp in Sindh and hopefully we would see a presidential form of government in the next decade which is half the solution to current crisis.

    I agree but isnt the meat of the article really about what you are saying (since its referring to debris piling up etc that needs to be sorted out concretely).

    Honestly the title of the original article was just "infrastructure development"....it did not have anything about beautification. Seems to have been inserted by the OP @waz @Dubious

    Doing something this idiotic is a guaranteed suicide for the Federal govt.

    PTI is the ruling party because of single-seat coalition parties it brought in. Getting them to renegade against the PTI is a much easier task than the thought of bringing Zardari 100km close to a jail.

    Mark my words. Zardari will burn Sindh to the ground before he ever goes back into a jailcell.

    When cancer spreads you either treat it or you die - full stop. It would be highly idiotic to bury ones head in the sand like an ostrich and pretend Zardari will go away. In fact Zardari will try to break the PTI government for the very reason you mentioned, which is PTI only having one seat extra. Someone need to show some steel no matter how unpopular.

    How do you bury a cult that for 30 years still believes a dead guy is alive? By going after it's donkey king? When the response to everything is "conspiracy"? Which the slaves of Sindh take as truths?

    People make hajj around the bhutto mausoleum ffs...

    Fawad can't even talk out of his mouth without having to contradict himself or have someone contradict him the next day. A unified comprehensive push by PTI isn't going to be carried out since 60% of it is just lota.

    unfortunately after 18 amendment all departments from collecting trash to providing health(water/food etc), education and many more approximately 16 departments are under provincials control without any further authority and control of federation.
    Karachits are very unlucky citizen of pakistan in term of political rule despite the fact karachits elected PTI but the city have to face the corrupt & incompetent rulers.

    READ my this comment to better understand the situation.

    JB tak bhutto zinda hai dam k lia rukawat Aati rahy gi.
    Jb pani hi nhi hoga tuo kiya karachi kiya lahore, peshawar, quetta or pakistan. sab piyasy marain gain pseudo-intellectuals PPP, ANP jesy logo ki waja se

    Water crises in Karachi.. Incompetence of sindh govt

    I agree with what you are saying cause it is the reality of the situation but mate, someone needs to take a very gutsy decision. Someone has to take them on cause this zardari junta is very dangerous for the country, also highly corrupt. If Fawad is not the right person, then bring the in the right person who can accomplish this.
