CM Sindh launches massive 'Clean My Karachi' drive

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has decided to launch first ever month-long massive drive to ‘Clean My Karachi’ in which over 600 dumpers, shovels, tractors and 4000 workers would participate all over the city.

He took this decision on Thursday while presiding over a follow up meeting to review cleanliness arrangements made for the ‘Clean My Karachi’ tribe.

The meeting was attended by Chief Secretary Mumtaz Shah, provincial ministers Saeed Ghani, Nasir Shah, Advisor Murtaza Wahab, Commissioner Karachi Iftikhar Shalwani, Secretary Local Government Roshan Shaikh, all deputy commissioners and other concerned officers.

This city of lights has lost its beauty in the heaps of filth and garbage accumulated along the roads and in the streets.

“What we have to do is to clean it once for all and hand over the cleaned city to DMCs and they will have to maintain it further.”

The deputy commissioners have been provided Rs50 million each along with it at temporary Garbage Transfer Stations (GTS) and then the same garbage would be transported to Landfill Sites of Godpas and Jam Chakro by Sindh Solid Waste Management Authority.

Through a 10-days exercise, the deputy commissioners under the guidance of the chief minister have divided garbage lifting work on sub-division level where the provincial government has provided tractors, loaders, shovels, tractor trollies and other machinery to the deputy commissioners.

The chief minister directed the minister local government Syed Nasir Shah to involve all the DMCs in the drive.

“I would visit each and every district and will meet with chairmen and Municipal Commissioners in the respective areas,” he said.

He also directed the minister to invite PTI’s Ali Zaidi to visit with him. “I’ll take the Mayor with me,” he said.

The CM directed the deputy commissioners to continue day and night lifting of garbage so that this gigantic task could be completed within 30 days.

CM Sindh asked the Local Government Minister to form a group of two ministers for each district to monitor cleanliness work.

He also urged him to involve Water Board so that cleaning of sewerage system could also be made all along with the garbage lifting drive.
