JI calls Wahab worst mayor in history of Karachi

Our Correspondent June 22, 2024


Saifuddin Advocate - the leader of the opposition in city council - has lambasted the Pakistan People Party's mayor in Karachi over his failures and declared him the worst mayor in the history of the megalopolis.

The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader expressed these views while addressing a press conference held at the KMC Building, here on Friday. He was flanked by Mubashir Hassan Zai, the parliamentary leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the council, JI's Qazi Saddaruddin and Jawad Shoaib among others.

Saifuddin Advocate chaired a meeting of the opposition representatives before the media briefing to examine the one year progress of the mayor.

He said while talking to the media that defying all traditions and customs, the opposition parties were totally neglected in compilation of the budget. He added that the self-imposed mayor just shared a few statistics with him at the eleventh hour, instead of taking the suggestions by all parliamentary leaders into account.

Talking about the one-year performance, he said that Wahab announced to provide 75 sewage covers to each UC and created a hype around it but the mayor even failed to keep his words as only 15 covers were provided to each UC instead of 75. He added that the mayor hasn't provided any development funds to union councils from the kitty of the KMC. He added that the Karachi generates the larger most chunk of tax but the PPP government never owns it.
