    Karachi must now become a separate province and have some authority in it’s finances to spend on betterment of the city.

    Karachi just like the rest of Pakistan needs to maintain its autonomy and not be under Federal system.

    It high time we are given the statues of a separate province.For the last fifty years karacli has been given stepmotherly treatment resulting in total breakdown of basic amenities. It should be the most developed city in Pakistan.

    Karachi needs to retain the real karachiites by allocating all positions and posts to only karachiites. I just don’t understand how can people from all other cities just come and use our city as a ladder for their prosperity and when the city needs them all they do is leave the city after filling up their bank accounts. They should be banned to enter karachi because we the karachiites want to do a lot for our city but what about these scavengers who are waiting to destroy the system and the city.
