Caretaker Sindh Chief Minister Fazal-ur-Rehman has directed Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) and other local bodies to ensure proper cleanliness and provision of necessary facilities in the area where polling stations would be set up.
He held a meeting with the Mayor Karachi, Waseem Akhtar who called on him at CM House here on Thursday.
The chief minister said that he has already directed the local bodies to keep their respective areas neat and clean and get all the roads and drainage system repaired if required so that people could reach to their polling stations for casting their vote without any problem.
He said that most of the roads in the city have been reconstructed but in some of the streets and some lanes have overflowing gutters and carters in their roads. “I want all these dilapidated roads and gutter systems should be fixed before the polling day,” he said, adding, “We [caretaker set up] want to ensure that there should be good atmosphere everywhere in the province when polling is started.”
The Mayor Karachi assured the chief minister that he would ensure proper maintenance of roads and drainage system and would also coordinate with other local bodies working in the city for cleanliness and repair works.
He informed the chief minister that the cleaning work on Nalas and Storm Water Drains have been started and within next few days the work would be completed. “This would develop over the impact on the disposal of wastewater in the city,” Waseem informed.
