Pricey water forcing Karachi industrialists to shift to other cities
Korangi Association of Trade and Industry President Saleemuz Zaman told 24News TV channel that it had become impossible to run industries when water in the city was so expensive.
“A well-known industrialist and United Business Group President SM Muneer has shifted his factory to Lahore while other industrialists also have similar plans,” he disclosed.
Talking to 24News TV channel, Muneer said that in Karachi he had to spend Rs200 million to Rs250 million on purchasing water, which was no more affordable.
