Mayor of Karachi Waseem Akhtar has promised that those displaced during the anti-encroachment operation shall be given space at some other location.
He explained this in media that this is only applicable to the shopkeepers who have given the rent to KMC.
“We have a record for every shop in the estate department and the people with genuine complaints will be adjusted in other markets in Karachi,” he briefed media.
He further clarified that I am not supporting the agenda of any political party hence the question of accountability to any political party doesn’t arise. I am doing what Supreme Court has ordered me to do as government official.
Local minister Saeed Ghani commented on this encroachment operation and said this was for the betterment of the city and affected shopkeepers will be give compensation.
