Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Waseem Akhtar Tuesday said if the agreements made with them are not taken seriously then they would make their own decision, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference, he said those who signed the agreement with us should oversee the problems.
Lashing out at the Sindh government over its poor performance and failure in meeting the challenge of the monsoon rains despite being in power for the past 14 years, former mayor Karachi said the government officials have gone to interior Sindh for celebrating Eidul Azha with families.
“This is what happens when people are hired on fake domiciles and locals are denied jobs,” he added.
“PPP-led Sindh had completely failed to deal with the current emergency situation,” he said.
“Where are the officials of Sindh Waste Management Board (SWMB)? Why didn’t the nullahs (of Karachi) were not cleaned a month earlier,” he asked
He added that Karachi is being run through deputy commissioners and complained that the Sindh government did not devolve powers to local bodies and said the situation would be different if it had been done.
He decried nothing was done for the metropolis despite record tax collection, adding that the people lost lives and their properties were damaged.
Waseem said the people of Karachi are asking why their tax money is not spent on them, adding that the city already did not have an infrastructure and what was left was destroyed in recent rains.
He urged Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to take notice of the incompetence of the provincial government.
