KARACHI: Under the supervision of Sindh Minister for Local Government and Information Sharjeel Inam Memon, three more illegal marriage halls in Orangi Town were demolished on Tuesday which were running under the garb of a school.

While talking to the media during an anti-encroachment operation in the northwestern part of Karachi, he made an appeal to Chief Justice of Pakistan Nasirul Mulk to issue show cause notices to subordinate courts that they must not issue stay orders against the removal of encroachments and demolition of illegal marriage halls.

These stay orders hamper the operation against illegal encroachments and wedding halls, he added.

The minister stated that the ongoing operation is not being carried out against any political party nor under any pressure. “Let me make it clear that I am not being pressurised by anyone in this regard.”

Sharjeel Memon also said no one is dictating us for the operation, adding that a marriage hall was demolished today (Tuesday) as it was a school plot but by building a small school in fact marriage halls were functioning.

This operation would continue till all the encroachments are removed from the Sindh province including Karachi, he added.

Referring to ghost employees in KMC, he said a list of more than 1,000 ghost employees has been prepared and final action is awaited.
