Jalbani Baloch | 4 years ago | Reply All these types of facilities should have started from Karachi, which is a mega city and has a greater share of contribution in the national economy, but unfortunately, this city continues to be neglected for being Sindh's city, which has suffered a lot due to the internal bickering between MQM and PPP Government. Karachi is a cosmopolitan city and houses millions of people from other provinces, amongst which, Punabis and Pushtoons are on the top of list. The Government of Sindh can hardly meet the growing needs of this mega city and since it is a mini Pakistan, the federal government should inject a separate budgetary support for the development of Karachi. Though, without having feelings of jealousy, I request that these types of projects should also be lunched in Karachi.
