Both Bilawal, Murad were born in Karachi and have shares in the city, said Murtaza Wahab | Instant News

It would be wrong to assume that Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah are apathetic to Karachi’s development because both were born in Karachi and have a share in the city.

This was confirmed by CM Sindh Advisor for Law and Environment Lawyers Murtaza Wahab during a speech at the Federal Area B Trade and Industry Association ceremony on Wednesday.

The legal adviser mentioned that CM has promised to develop the Karachi SITE area and two roads are being built there while nine more roads will be built in the coming year.

He claimed that the Sindh government had carried out construction work in all of the city’s industrial estates without the fanfare of ribbon-cutting ceremonies after the projects were completed.

Wahab claims that the Sindh government has invested billions of rupees in industrial estates. He said that the provincial law and environment department under his auspices would hold monthly meetings with industry players to solve their problems.

He said industrialists face injustice because they do not get natural gas that they produce themselves. He alleged that the federal government did not pay a cent of its Rs300 billion share in the Rs1,100 billion Karachi Development Package.

He said the federal government had attempted to carry out Chinese cuts in the Sindh region by seizing control of two islands off the coast of Karachi through a presidential decree. He said that for this reason, the federal government was hesitant to present the same rules in the National Assembly.

Wahab said the federal government is not providing the sovereign guarantees needed for the revival of the Karachi Circle Railway as it is more interested in building the ML-1 railway project between Karachi and Peshawar.

He said the controversial census results committee set up by the federal government under Maritime Affairs Minister Ali Zaidi had not consulted Sindh.

Expressing displeasure at the official’s unpreparedness, CJP Ahmed questioned what they knew about the citizens’ needs. “Are we going to frame the charges against you and send you to jail because you are unaware of the problems this city faces?”

The top judge observed that the case lasted four years but to no avail. “A multi-storey building is built on a one-story building permit. Government land is out of your control.”

After a short break, the trial continued with CM Murad appearing before the judge and looking for two weeks to submit a report. He was accompanied by Murtaza Wahab and the provincial minister for local government Nasir Shah.

The court has given the chief minister of Sindh one month to submit a report.
