Karachi’s infrastructure: ‘PPP gave the court’s order a political spin’

February 1, 2019
SAMAA TV's Moiz Jaferii talks about the Supreme Court's recent order relating to Karachi's infrastructure and the reaction to it

On January 24, the Supreme Court ordered the Sindh government to expedite the process of improving Karachi’s infrastructure. The court ordered the Sindh government to call a cabinet meeting and submit a report in two weeks. The top court wanted the city’s master plan too. Justice Gulzar Ahmed had said that the court wants the master plan, which was approved in 1960.

After the court’s order, the Pakistan Peoples Party gave the situation a successful political spin, says the co-host of SAMAA TV’s programme Agenda 360, Abdul Moiz Jaferii. The PPP did this by telling people that their homes, property and investments were under threat, said Jaferii.

He talks about how the Supreme Court’s order has been misinterpreted by political parties to further their agenda and spark tension among the public.

He said the apex court clearly directed the authorities of the province to formulate a plan on how to rehabilitate the people living in illegally constructed buildings and not to directly demolish 500 buildings.

    Not karachi or Sind, whole Pakistan has been abused by politically or economically corrupt people..Narion has to take a start from somewhere, why not from top brass
    As PM said he will present himself for scrutiny then his party leaders, this process should visually witnessed by media.
