Tired of bad governance, MQM-P calls for Karachi province

Amir Khan says Sindh govt is only interested in corruption

Tired of bad governance in Karachi, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan has once again called for making the largest megapolis of the country a separate province.

"Karachi has been destroyed but the Peoples Party has not been demonstrating seriousness," MQM-P leader Amir Khan lamented while exclusively speaking to Samaa TV Sunday.

"It is not wrong for the people of Karachi to ask for a separate province under the present circumstances."

The PPP government in Sindh was only interested in corruption, he alleged. Khan said a permanent solution to Karachi's issues could not be found, until these issues were not taken seriously.

He demanded that all mayors in Sindh be empowered in order to resolve public issues.

The issues faced by a mega city like Karachi could not be resolved in this budget, according to the MQM-P leader.

The MQM-P's demand for a separate province comes days after the city suffered damages due to heavy monsoon rains.

Rainwater flooded homes in many areas of the city causing the residents losses worth millions of rupees.

A debate has since been ongoing on social media regarding making Karachi a separate province.

    I support Karachi being an autonomous district with no control by any provincial government. A mayor and a city council should be the only governing body for a city with federal budget being directly passed to the people through the city district governing body under the supervision and oversight of a federal “oversight council”. I think this should be applied to all the cities in pakistan to reduce provincial government interference in the distribution of budget for city development. Pakistan’s largest revenue generators are the cities which are centers of commerce with international entities. It is incompetent to keep the city under the thumb of bloated provincial government body that only seeks to funnel federal budget into their personal election war chests while giving cities practically no money for the upkeep and beautification of the city.
