Oil tankers were not removed from the residential area of Shireen Jinnah Colony on Monday.
The Supreme Court ordered shifting of the oil tanker parking from Shireen Jinnah Colony to the Karachi Port Trust’s temporary parking area. It further directed the City District Government Karachi to set up a permanent oil tankers terminal in Zulfiqarabad on the land allocated by the Sindh government.
Even though, a temporary parking place had been allotted, the giant oil tankers continue to remain parked in the small lanes of the residential area and clogging them.
Locals of Shireen Jinnah Colony had enthusiastically welcomed the court ruling, but are now in dismay by the lack of compliance by the oil tanker owners.
