According to the news, the CM made the statement while addressing the post-budget conference at Sindh assembly auditorium Karachi. “The rejected people of Karachi are making a baseless claim that the city has been ignored in terms of allocation for development schemes,” he said
Further, he added; “At present, different development schemes of Rs990bn started under the Annual Development Program, donor agencies, public-private partnership are at different stages,”, adding up that in the next year’s ADP, Rs110bn had been assigned for the development of the city.
According to the statement made by CM Sindh, at least Rs3,000bn were required for Karachi development work but the provincial government did not have those resources. And many big development projects and schemes have been accomplished by his Govt, like; widening of Sharea Faisal, Tariq Road, University Road, Madinat-ul-Hikma Road, Shahrah-i-Qu Aideen, Hawkes bay Road, construction of numerous flyovers, underpasses, and various others.
As per CM Murad Ali Shah, the deficiency will be covered by limiting non-development expenses and the presented development budget, which is Rs1.47 trillion, will not be affected.
