Administrator Karachi further said that KATI is serving the city, Urban Forest is the dream of all of us and soon this dream will be realized. He said that industrialists and businessmen are the backbones of the development of the country, they will make SM Muneer Road an ideal road, there is a need for the construction and repair of roads leading to the Korangi Industrial Zone.
Billions of rupees in tax are given to the government from Korangi Industrial Area. Dr. Saif-ur-Rahman said I am looking for who is throwing garbage on the causeway, I will discuss this issue with the CEO of the Cantonment Board, and I will make all my efforts to solve the municipal problems with KATI, A unique approach needs to be adopted to further improve Shahrah Faisal.
He further said that all the intersections of the city are going to be made beautiful and green, there are some difficulties in solving the problems but it is our responsibility to solve them. Administrator Karachi said that my team is committed to the development of KATI, and the cleaning of storm drains before the onset of monsoon is among the priorities, in addition to this, the greening of the Malir river will be started soon. He thanked KATI and said that KATI settled the industrial zone, if it becomes deserted, the country's problems will increase. Municipalities will involve Karachi, DMCs and other stakeholders in providing basic infrastructure.
He said that additional fire tenders have been provided in all the industrial zones of Karachi so that any emergency can be controlled immediately. Earlier, KATI President Faraz-ur-Rehman said that the plan to build a new bridge by removing the existing Jam Sadiq bridge is under consideration, which should be implemented immediately. Industrialists have nothing to do with politics.
It is the responsibility of the government to provide a permanent solution to the problems of Karachi. Working to beautify all intersections on SM Muneer Road. Industrialists want to work together with the state to contribute to the development of the country. He said that we will not allow SM Muneer Road to be used for the Yellow Line, it is better if the government uses Central Island for this project because the heavy traffic pressure is already high on this road and The World Bank also acknowledged our point of view.
He thanked Administrator Karachi Dr. Syed Saif-ur-Rehman that the provision of additional fire tenders and personnel are helping to quickly control the various incidents of fire in the factories of Korangi Industrial Area, last year more than 400 fire incidents were brought under immediate control. Speaking at the event, Deputy Patron-in-Chief Zubair Chhaya said that Korangi Industrial Area is the main artery of the country's economy, but there are many problems with electricity, gas and especially water. Karachi is largely overlooked but still contributes 70 percent of the country's revenue.
The infrastructure in Karachi is in poor condition. Korangi Industrial Zone was built by industrialists and the result is that Korangi is the largest industrial zone in Karachi. He said that together with the Sindh government, development projects worth 1.5 billion rupees were carried out, which were appreciated at the international and government level. On this occasion, Zahid Saeed, CEO of KITE Limited, said that many times proposals for an urban forest in storm drains have been presented but it is ignored.
