This is our city and the people living here are our people. We must serve them at their best, ”he said. Mayor Akhtar noted that all the gutters are overflowing because the city's drainage system did not have the ability to meet the needs of the population.

DMC Chairman, Cantonment Board and KWSB to develop detailed plans for upgrading and rebuilding urban sewage systems. I know this city needs a new and modern drainage system to work with the World Bank," he said.
Nightly coordination meeting
The meeting pointed out that everyone, including the chief minister, the mayor and the administration, was on their way to alleviate people's difficulties due to heavy rains, but it was not a coordinated effort. CM's advisor, Wahab, said that most of the areas flooded by rainfall due to rainfall were within the jurisdiction of the cantonment, but people blamed the local government for failing.
CM instructed LG every two weeks to hold a coordination meeting where all elected representatives, including the mayor, DMC chairman, SSWMB, Canton board representatives, etc., could be called to discuss the issues of each organization. You can solve it in a coordinated way in the same way.
SSWMB is launched
At the meeting, most of the participants pointed out the poor performance of SSWMB and said they had no personal staff and borrowed executives from other departments. The chief minister said that better performance requires hiring experts in the market. He instructed LG to improve the performance of SSWMB. Otherwise, we will return the work of lifting the garbage and visiting garbage collection to DMC.
I was told that the meeting did not have a designated Garbage Transfer Station (GTS) assigned to DMC. The CM instructed the chairman and deputy director of the DMC to identify the land in each region so that the GTS could be established separately so that the GTS would not throw away the opened garbage. The minister also instructed Mayor Akhtar and DMC to begin fumigation driving in the city.
Murad has promised the market will solve all KMC problems. The mayor said it offered 48 vehicles to DMC for fumigation. Even if we don't have the money to fund a drug, we've prepared it and gave it to a local agency," he said. The Prime Minister said in a week that he would hold a separate meeting with Mayor Karachi to solve all of KMC's problems.
DMC chairmen pointed out that while the salaries of employees have increased by 40% over the past three years, the Sind government has not raised subsidies. The prime minister said that LG could study salary structures of all local staff to protect their salaries.
The market complained that K-Electric had disconnected KMC's power connection despite the fact that the utility company itself was a non-compliance with the KMC land use legislation. The Secretary of State told KE authorities to pay KMC for land use legislation and that other LGs also have the right to pay for installation costs last week.
