KARACHI: Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique was shocked to see potholed streets and broken pavements in a recent visit to Karachi.
He was here on Saturday to inaugurate a Railway Employees Apartment building. Criticizing the Sindh Government he said, “The province gets Rs 9 billion and it is still in ruins.”
“Instead of making tall claims they should they should hold themselves accountable. They should give basic necessities to their people,” he said.
Speaking about the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) he said that there were issues in the original plan. He said the Sindh Government never wanted to begin work on the KCR. “The metro bus should have come to Karachi first. But the public transport system here is horrible,” he said.
He said the decision of Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan to distance themselves from London was a wise move.
