KARACHI: Muttahida Qoumi Movement (MQM) has started the “Clean Karachi Campaign” (CKC) in the city on Thursday morning aiming to clean every part of Karachi.

“Today, we are working on our “National” aim to clean and green Karachi. We have started our campaign from Wazir Mansion as it’s our national heritage and it is our duty to bring back the beauty of precious national monuments,” said MQM’s deputy convener Farooq Sattar.

Surrounded with trash, the old-heritage building Wazir Mansion was awaiting response from the Sindh government as its beauty has been ruined due to ‘Kuchra Kundi” (waste dump).
