Sindh Governor warns mafias against land grabbing

KARACHI:Sindh Governor Kamran Khan Tessori has warned the land and occupation mafias to take their eyes off the land of Karachi.

“SHOs should also be ready to halt any move to occupy the land of Karachi. K-Electric and Sui Southern Gas Company should also mend their way and normalize the service to the citizens. The foundation stone of Pak China Friendship Park was laid today on the occasion of Chinese New Year. The foundation of the park is aimed at sending a message on behalf of the citizens of Karachi to the citizens of China that Karachiites always want to maintain a relationship of love and friendship with the people of China,” the Administrator said this while talking to media representatives after laying the foundation stone of Pak China Friendship Park on Kashmir Road.

Acting Consul General of China Zhang Hao, Administrator Karachi Dr. Syed Saifur Rahman, heads of various departments of KMC and a large number of local people were also present on this occasion. The Governor of Sindh said that the foundation stone of the park has been laid, adding that after a month he will give another park to Karachi.

He said that uplift works will be speed up in all areas of Karachi. He said that the construction work of Aladeen Park is going on rapidly where there were hundreds of tons of debris and garbage. He said that at the other corner of Kashmir Road, there was an illegal hydrant from where the water was leaking, adding that it was removed.

Tessori said that all the barren areas will be given attention in the coming days and he is trying hard to improve the infrastructure of Karachi. In response to a question, the Governor Sindh said that rigging is not visible in local body elections, but the turnout has been very low.

China’s Acting Consul General Jing Hao said that Pak-China friendship is strong and hoped to strengthen it. He said that it is China’s policy to maintain good relations with the world and especially with neighboring countries.

He said that China’s relations with Pakistan are ideal and there are good memories associated with it. He said that naming this park after China is a matter of happiness for all of us. Jing Hao said that the two cities of China, Beijing and Shanghai, are the twin cities of Karachi, which prove that Pakistan and China are good and compassionate friends of each other.
