Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has said at least $10 billion are needed to revamp the city’s infrastructure.
The chief minister made the remarks while discussing Karachi’s problems with the representatives of main political parties in the city.
“The city’s issues are not new, they have been here for some time. In the last four years, we have worked a lot on cleaning the storm drains in the city,” he told.
He added that the Sindh government has been giving money to KMC to clean the nullahs in the city.
“In the last four years we cleared many nullahs in the city . Despite the rain the water was cleared within three to four hours,” he said. “The major problem is due to a major structure which has blocked all nullahs in Karachi which are the responsibility of the cantonments and DMCS.”
He continued, “In recent times the responsibility to clean the storm drains lie with KMC and Sindh government has given money to clean the nullahs.”
