In a meeting with Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Tuesday, a two-member delegation of the Jamaat-e-Islami, led by Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman, demanded that a discussion for âa proper census in Karachiâ be held at todayâs CCI meeting.
âThe Local Government Act should be repealed for the establishment of an empowered city government in Karachi,â Rehman urged.
The governor assured the JIâs delegation that the CCI meeting would discuss the Karachi census and the transfer of powers from the provincial government to the city government. Rehman presented a memorandum to the governor.
After the meeting, the JI leader spoke to the media and said: âThe rulers will try their best not to count the people of Karachi correctly and submit the old census report.â He said the Rs1,100 billion package announced for Karachi was proving to be âjust a promise like the previous package of Rs162 billionâ.
