‘PPP not running away from LG polls; wants to improve system’


Sindh Government Spokesman Barrister Murtaza Wahab on Thursday said that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) was not running away from the local government (LG) elections as it was a popular party in the province.

The party, he said, would grab the mayoral slots both in Karachi and Hyderabad, whenever the LG polls were held, as evident from the Malir by-election where it had won back the National Assembly seat.

Actually, the PPP government was committed to improve the local government system and that was why the summary for amendments in the municipal laws would be sent for approval in the next 48 hours, he said addressing the opening ceremony of the 100 kilowatt power generation project here at the Kidney Hill Park.Director General Parks Junaidullah Khan and other officers were also present on the occasion.

Murtaza Wahab, who is also Administrator Karachi, said the Karachi Municipal Corporation (KMC) had planted trees across the city to combat climate change.The KMC was setting a new tradition in the form of a green energy project to emulate by the LG bodies elsewhere in the country, he added.
