Karachi: A committee on Sunday has been formed under the supervision of Chief Minister of Sindh (CM) Murad Ali Shah to resolve issues of entire province including Karachi.
According to the details, a team of three each from the federal and provincial governments will discuss Karachi’s development strategy.
The spokesperson of the Sindh Provincial Government, Murtaza Wahab, took this opportunity to say that only through the joint efforts of the federal and provincial governments can the province’s problems be resolved.
Previously, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) joined forces to develop Karachi.
An agreement was reached during a multi-hour meeting of the three stakeholders. Important figures from the Pakistani army also attended the meeting.
Assad Umer, Ali Zaidi, Wasem Akhtar, Sindh Chief Minister Said Murad Ali Shah, Said Ghani and Nasir Shah attended the meeting.
The development was made after the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the National Disaster Management Agency to clean up all drainage and open channels in Karachi, remove the violations and submit a report to it within three months.
Judge Gulzar Ahmed, a three-member Supreme Court headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan, heard a case involving violations of the city’s drainage ditches and open channels at the Karachi Registry on Wednesday.
The court expressed frustration with the Karachi Commissioner’s report on the violation of clearing open channels and drains.
