KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Sunday that there was a criminal mafia in Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) which was involved in provision of illegal connections and due to which, some parts of the city faced water shortage.
Talking to media after inaugurating Family Park in Clifton, Block III, he said that land mafia had grabbed many sport grounds and parks in the city, hence, all encroachments in the city would be removed and development projects would be started.
“Removing of encroachments is the biggest challenge for Karachi Circular Railway (KCR), but the federal government had assured full support for completing it.
Responding to a question regarding Pakistan Steel Mills, he said that Pakistan People’s Party would not allow anyone to make the workers jobless but those who received salaries should do work so that the mill could come out of crisis.
He said that the remaining part of Lyari Expressway would be completed soon.
