Administrator Karachi Laiq Ahmed has said that a partnership is being formed between KMC and the business community to develop the city. “Economically, Karachi is an attractive city with vast potential for development.” He said that the beauty of the city would be enhanced if the business community made their markets and shops beautiful and attractive.
He expressed these views while talking to a delegation of All Karachi Traders Union headed by Chairman Atiq Mir. The delegation called on the Administrator Karachi at his office and included presidents and other representatives of Aram Bagh, Cloth Market, Allahwala Market, Jamia Cloth Market, Karachi Admin Society, Sarafa Market and other markets, while Senior Director Anti-Encroachment Bashir Siddiqui. Director Estate Imran Siddiqui, Director Media Management Ali Hassan Sajid and other officials were also present on the occasion.
Appreciating that the business community will fully support KMC in these works, Laiq Ahmed said that there are problems due to encroachments and rocks in the markets while parking of vehicles in densely populated areas is also becoming difficult. Problems need to be addressed on a priority basis, especially before the start of Ramadan.
A suitable place can be set aside for stalls and carts so that their employment can continue, said the Administrator . And it will be considered because the whole family is involved in the employment of one individual, he said, adding that KMC is eliminating the shops that have been set up in the markets incorrectly and a system is being devised that the rent goes to KMC instead of going into someone else’s pocket.
He directed the Director State to relocate the victims of demolished shops who were tenants of KMC on the direction of the Supreme Court.
