KARACHI: Najmi Alam, vice chairman of the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KW&SB), visited the North Karachi Association of Trade and Industry (Nkati) and assured the industrialists to resolve their problems, a statement said.

Talking to the industrialists, Alam said that all possible facilities would be provided for the smooth running of the production activities, while water supply and drainage issues will be addressed on a priority basis.

He said he would soon convene a meeting with the engineers of the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board in Nkati so that their issues could be resolved.

Nkati president Faisal Moiz Khan said that the sewerage problems are increasing in North Karachi industrial area, which are also damaging the newly-constructed roads constructed under the grant received from the Sindh government. Therefore, effective and lasting measures should be taken to prevent the destruction of infrastructure.

Alam said that Nkati would be provided rods and suction machines on a regular basis by the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board.

Referring to the slaughter house located in Sector 12C, Khan said that the slaughter house was causing filth and putrefaction, which had become a threat to the human life. Although the slaughter house has been shifted to Surjani Town, the existing Slaughter House is no longer needed in the industrial area.

He suggested that a civic centre like building should be set up in place of the slaughter house. There should be a fire station, road cleaning machines, crime monitoring cell and Nkati Welfare Clinic so that the industrialists of North Karachi can have all the facilities under one roof.
