KARACHI (APP) - Nazim Karachi Syed Mustafa Kamal said that development of Karachi took place without any Master Plan during the last 60 years and the city comprises over 40 of Katchi Abadis. He said 822 Goths and 435 Katchi Abadis are leased but still there are 2500 rural areas and many of them are such where neither ambulance nor fire brigade can go inside. He said it is a difficult task to lay infrastructure and provide basic facilities to people there nut Haq Parast leadership has carried out planning for development of such areas and providing facilities to people living there. He was talking to a group of boys and girl students of Bahawalpur Islamic University, now on a study visit here, who called on him at his office and exchanged views with him on speedy development of Karachi and other matters. Nazim told the visitors thah it was for the first time that Haq Parast leadership prepared Karachis Master Plan and caried out a coordinated planning for reconstruction of Katchi Abadis and providing maximum facilities to their people. He said that like the resettlement of affectees of Lyari Expressway, the people living a sub-standard life in the Katachi Abadis would be rehabilitated in areas to be equipped with all modern facilities. Mustafa Kamal informed that the present city government performed development works in four years more than the last 50 years. But it does not mean that we should go asleep as there is lot of work that has yet to be done. Our competition is not with the previous government but with problems, he said adding that when these roblems, particularly basic ones, when slved we would thiank that our task has finished. He said we developed Karachi as being an important city of Pakistan to bring it in competition with worlds other developed cities. He said because of the initiatives taken Karachi was included by World Economic Forum among those 12 big cities of world here economy is fast progressing. This would not only benefit the people of Karachi but entire Pakistan because Karachi contributes 68 percent revenue to national exchequer. He said if development will take place here, it would add to the countrys revenue. He informed the students that 148 schools are being upgraded as model schools while special attention has been paid on parks and plantation which added to the citys beauty.
