Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmad said on Friday all institutions on  provincial level are corrupt including the Sindh Revenue Board.

As per details, Justice Gulzar Ahmad heard the case pertaining to encroachments at the Supreme Court Karachi Registry.

During the proceedings, the advocate general presented a copy of the Karachi Master Plan to the court for review.

He said a building collapsed in the metropolis, people died but no one showed any concern.

The CJP inquired from Advocate General Sindh Salman Talibuddin about the progress in the Circular Railway project.

The advocate general told the court that mass transit plan has been formed and the Green Line Bus and the Orange Line projects have been completed.

Justice Gulzar Ahmad responded that if the projects are completed then run the buses.

He stressed that Karachi needs compact projects, tall buildings are made here on small plots and all obsolete buses of the country are being used.

Salman Talibuddin said action taken against all corrupt officers. Justice Sajjad Ali Shah remarked that all the steps that have been taken are fake.

Speaking about the Orange Line project, the advocate general promised that the service would be made operational by next year.

“Why not next month?” the chief justice asked.

“It seems as if you do not pay the contractors. Go to Nazimabad, it seems like no work is being done [on the project] there,” he said.

“Please work for the country,” admonished the chief justice. “It seems you all do not work till someone stands bearing a stick over your head.”
