KARACHI: A series of federal government funded development projects worth Rs. 75 billion is being completed in the Metropolis without any compromise, said Governor of Sindh, Muhammad Zubair, here today.

Talking to Mayor of Karachi, Waseem Akhter, who called on him to share series of steps taken by the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation to facilitate the citizens, the governor said these efforts will help streamline civic facilities across the metropolis.

Completion of Expressway is being fast followed by the realization of Green Line as well as the first phase of K-4 (water supply) projects meant to largely benefit the Karachiites.

“KMC is and can definitely play a crucial role in the efficient execution of the schemes,” said the Governor. The Karachi Mayor apprised him of measures adopted to streamline traffic flow around the under-construction fly-overs and underpass across the metropolis.

The Mayor was of the opinion that the completion of these development projects before the forthcoming general election could largely help people in acquiring the much-needed respite.
