  • Hope our poor govt or minister may not demand for commission. Development is a positive sign in any project/ sector, what stops development is, commission, which our corrupt govt , often demand from developers. We are in the worst condition in this region, due to commission. Our govt, it’s ministers cannot survive without taking commission or kick backs from developing work.

  • Dear UAE please take Karachi as well. You can better manage it then PDM and Sindh Govt.
