The provincial government has allocated lands for the establishment of two new graveyards in the city.
According to a local government ministry proposal, the government has allocated 100-acres land at Gaddap and Keamari respectively for the establishment of two new graveyards in the metropolis.
Last year, the Sindh government had established a new graveyard in Karachi to bury the victims of coronavirus.
The government had allocated land at Link Road- a road connecting Super Highway and National Highway in the city- for the graveyard. It spans over 80 acres of land.
