KARACHI: Land grabbing has become a thriving business in Karachi, posing a serious challenge to urban planning.
However, the Director General of the Karachi Development Authority (KDA), Syed Mohammad Ali Shah, has expressed his resolve to tackle the issue.
KDA has historically played a significant role in the infrastructural planning and development of Karachi.
With the city being overrun by unlawful encroachments and land grabs, KDA has finally taken action against these violations.
The landscape of Karachi is dominated by brazen acts of encroachments on roads, streets, parks, and spaces alongside railway tracks, with unscrupulous elements working in connivance with regulatory officials to set up makeshift or permanent structures in clear violation of the city’s master plan.
According to officials, the situation has gone beyond acceptable limits, and urgent action is required to halt the slide. KDA’s move is therefore a much-needed step in the right direction to address the issue.
The spokesperson stated that this will not only improve the city’s aesthetics but also promote sustainable and responsible urban development.
White Elephant has eaten roots of the city now these deep pits can fill only by the way of bulldozing.
