Governor of Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan has termed it good omen that city government in Karachi has within a very short period completed mega development projects.
He expressed these views during the inspection of work at Nagan Chowrangi Flyover with City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal on late night Thursday.
The Governor of Sindh also appreciated the planning for the project under which alternate routes were made for passing traffic that had minimized citizen’s problem.
The Governor further advised that especial care should be taken during the work on development projects so that the people would not have to face any trouble.
He said that the citizens have got great convenience with the development works carried out in Karachi during the last two and half years especially the completion of flyovers, underpasses and signal free corridors has provided lot of help in maintaining traffic flow during rush hours.
The Governor also praised the performance of city governments under dynamic leadership and said that city nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal deserved congratulation for his role in the rapid pace of development in Karachi.
“The Nagan Chowrangi was a very busy roundabout where the traffic jam and accidents were very common; however the city government has done a great thing by constructing a huge two level flyover at this junction within a very short time,” he added.
Nazim Karachi Syed Mustafa Kamal while giving a briefing to Governor said that passing traffic did not face any trouble during the construction of flyover as the problem was solved by better traffic management.

He further said that besides the construction of this two level flyover the city government has also installed a new storm water drainage system in the whole area and for this an special main drain was currently under construction.
“Previously this whole area used to submerged in water during the rains and though the new system was still to be completed the recent rains did not caused accumulation of water at the roads or streets,” Nazim Karachi said and added that the construction of all roads beneath and around the flyover will be completed by 13th August.
He said that the Nagan Chowrangi Flyover has been designed in such a way that the traffic coming from all side will pass here without making any stop. The beautification of the whole area was also underway.


Nazim Karachi Syed Mustafa Kamal has said that developing a park is indeed an easy job but it becomes very tough in Karachi where vacating occupied land and developing into park means fighting a war with the all powerful land mafia and exchange of gunfire.He expressed these views while addressing the inaugural ceremony of the reconstructed Jheel Park in PECHS on Thursday after the Governor of Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan inaugurated the park.The City Nazim said that this is not happened anywhere in the world except for Karachi where the occupiers open fire when they are asked to vacate the government land.He said that the heads of the state had in past allotted plots to their loved ones at the land of Bagh Ibn-e-Qasim in Clifton while a total of 16 to 17 acres of old Jheel Park was also occupied by the land mafia. The Haq parast government has now recovered this precious land from the occupation of land mafia and opened it for public and the credit for this should go to Governor Sindh Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan.
Nazim Karachi said that out of total 130 acres of Bagh Ibn-e-Qasim 70 acres was occupied and this was not possible for poor men to take up such an expensive land forcefully and these were only he near and dear ones of the past rulers who had done this.
“In such a situation this would have been very easy for Governor Sindh to occupy a 10 acre of the park land himself and a 5 acre for the City Nazim and then to put all the blame on the land mafia who had already occupied the place but the Haq Parast government believed in the resolution of citizens problems and provision of all basic facilities to them,” the City Nazim said and added that they received many phone calls from the top notch country officials to stop it when they started work at Bagh Ibn-e-Qasim. “but we did not listened to them and eventually succeeded in restoring public land and constructing a huge beautiful park where the people enjoy now.
He said that there was no empty piece of land in the densely populated PECHS especially near Tariq Road and a major part of the only old park in the area was occupied by the land mafia and the place was made centre of criminal activities and no go area for the people. When the city government bulldozers get their they started firing and we were threatened on telephone but the residents of this area would testify that we have not left even an inch of the government land in the hands of the mafia and now the 30 year old Jheel Park has once again available for public.
