Mayor Karachi, KMC out from new KDA Governing Body

KARACHI: The newly-constituted Governing Body Karachi Development Authority (KDA) has no representation of Mayor Karachi and Karachi Municipal Corporation.     

A new governing body of KDA has been constituted, which has no representation of the elected local government of the city. Neither Mayor Karachi nor any representative of Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) is on the body.

The new body has Provincial Minister for Local Bodies as its chairman while two MPAs Javed Nagori and Sajid Jokhio are member of the body.

Its is ironic that the development authority of the city has no representation of the elected local government of the city. For the first time, Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) and Karachi Building Control Authority too have not been given representation in the governing body.
