KARACHI: The Agha Steel Circle Monument on Shaheed-e-Millat Expressway was inaugurated on Thursday night by Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar.

The metallic globe shaped monument, which is located near the Hill Park chowrangi, bears symbols representing different cities in the country, such as Lahore’s Minar-e-Pakistan, Peshawar’s Khyber Pass, Ziarat’s Quaid-i-Azam’s residency and Karachi’s Jinnah mausoleum.

The symbols are interlinked, depicting the unity amongst different ethnicities and citizens of the country.

Talking to the media after the ceremony, Akhtar said he has inaugurated this monument alongside the general public to send a message that he and his government serve the people and work with their support.

'How can the Sindh govt handover the park without involving the mayor?'

He added that the city has seen many injustices and has never been given its due share in the budget, whereas the revenue collected from the city is the backbone of the country and helps develop every part of the country. According to Akhtar, though we are not empowered and have minimal resources, we have great enthusiasm and passion to serve the city.

The mayor also pointed out that all these symbols of different regions of the country on the monument spreads a message of unity and harmony among the citizens.

On the occasion, District Municipal Corporation East Chairman Moeed Anwar and officials of the Agha Steel group were also present.
