KARACHI: Administrator Karachi Rauf Akhtar Farooqui said on Monday that allocation would be made in the next fiscal year budget for construction and repairing roads of Korangi industrial area and Jam Sadiq Bridge so that the problems facing industrialists could be resolved.
He expressed these views in a meeting with a delegation of industrialists from Korangi at his office and discussed the problems being faced by them.
Farooqui said due to the ending of current financial year in Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, the repairing and carpeting works of inner Korangi roads would be carried out by the end of July or start of August.
He said KMC would perform the repairing and carpeting of these roads, however, the industrialists should cooperate in the tree plantation and greenery works on the green belts and pavements outside their units. This would help make the whole area green and beautiful.
Farooqui urged the industrialists to use their influence in the policy making also, besides extending their practical cooperation in the progress of Karachi. This would give the resources in accordance to the needs of the city.
He said efforts were on for incorporating reconstruction of Jam Sadiq Bridge in the next provincial budget so that its repairing and construction could be carried out. However, work on this would only be started by August.
