The information minister highlighted that all the uplift projects in Karachi will be undertaken after taking the Sindh government and stakeholders on board.
Earlier, the prime minister directed that the Karachi Transformation Plan be finalised this week in consultation with all stakeholders so that the process of a formal approval and implementation phase for a permanent solution to Karachi’s problems could begin.
He said that the development of the country is linked to the development of Karachi. The premier said the government can’t turn a blind eye to the plight of the people and the federation will play its full role for the solution and development of Karachi’s problems.
