Clean up Karachi in seven days: SC

The Supreme Court has taken notice over non-lifting of garbage in the city and has given deadline to its civic agencies to remove all of it within one week. The court inquired from the Chief Secretary Sindh as to why heaps of garbage are present in different parts of the city and which authority is responsible for removing it. It observed that political game is being played by both KMC and the Sindh govt. resulting in people’s suffering. The court asked both bodies to think above the politics for welfare of the citizens and that all authorities have to fulfill their responsibilities. The court also directed that disposal of waste, fate of solid waste management board and outsourcing of DMC employees should be decided by a judicial commission appointed by the court.
