PM Abbasi announces Rs25bn development package for Karachi

KARACHI: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday announced Rs25 billion development package for Karachi.

“Soon work on the Rs25 billion-development package would start under the supervision of Sindh governor,’ he told journalists here.

Rangers would continue its job in the port city as the law and order would be improved further, he said.

Speaking about problems being faced by traders, the prime minister said that their difficulties would be resolved on priority basis.

He said that the traffic system in the city would be made efficient.

Talking about the support the MQM-P had extended to him during his election as PM, Abbasi said the party had given him unconditional support.

He denied that Farooq Sattar had put any condition or demand for extending support to him in the parliament.

He said that MQM-P was a political party and within the legal limits all the genuine problems of the party would be addressed.

About the ex-PM’s homecoming rally, Abbasi said that the former prime minister was going to his home and he was not against any institution.

Nawaz Sharif is and would remain leader of PML-N, he said.

Speaking about the recent controversial law that repealed the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO) 1999 in Sindh, the prime minister said that the law needs to be reviewed.

On the occasion, the prime minister also announced Rs5 billion for various development schemes in Hyderabad. 

Earlier, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday arrived in the city on first official visit.

Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair and Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah received the prime minister.

The premier visited the Quaid's mausoleum to pay his regards, ahead of the seventieth Independence Day.
