Administrator Karachi said that arrangements should be made to remove encroachments beneath the various flyovers and bridges in the city. He said that illegal constructions and encroachmetns would not be endured in any case and operation against encroachments would continue especially on roads, parks, play grounds and plots allocated for welfare purposes and land mafia would not be allowed to occupy those locations.
He said that encroachments were stains on forehead of the city and citizens were facing difficulties due to them therefore KMC with the collaboration of Police Department and District Municipal Corporations will carry out anti-encroachment process in the city so that we all together could make Karachi free from encroachments.
He said this would also be considered in operation being carried out against encroachments that they could not be re-established as citizens of Karachi also want roads, footpaths, parks and play grounds free from encroachments for which KMC and DMCs labour, vehicles and machinery would be used so that every type of encroachments could be removed from the city as soon as possible.
