During his recent visit to Karachi, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the federal administration and the Sindh government need to cooperate for the betterment of the country’s largest metropolis.
While addressing an event in association with the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) project, the PM said that regardless of the fact that political opinions contrast, they (provincial and federal) should work together for Karachi.
Furthermore, he encouraged Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to re-examine his position on Bundal Island Project–Pakistan Islands Development Authority or PIDA.
Imran Khan stated that if Karachi had a problem, the entire country would suffered. The premier in his address has warned that if problems are not addressed quickly, they will get out of control.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is in Karachi for a day to lay the groundwork for the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) project.
The 43-kilometer-long Karachi Circular Railway Project, worth 250 billion rupees, is expected to be completed in three years.
The modern circular railway’s thirty stations will connect residential, industrial, and office areas. This will not only reduce traffic congestion in Karachi but will also benefit passengers.
Earlier on November 19, 2020, the KCR had finally welcomed passengers after remaining dysfunctional for 21 years. The development project has gained more attention from the authorities as a result of contempt notices being issued to Sindh Government and Pakistan Railways by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
