KMC needs Rs200mn to collect debris
Karachi: Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) has demanded a grant of Rs200mn to collect debris and rubble of the razed illegal structures in District South and Old City areas.
Sources said the KMC has no funds to collect debris from streets and repair footpaths, where anti-encroachments operations were recently carried out.
In this regard Metropolitan Commissioner Dr.Saifur Rehman, in a letter, has demanded financial assistance of Rs200mn from secretary local government and secretary finance.
It was feared that if the financial assistance was not granted the KMC may not be able to lift debris from the city streets.
