A gift to (some) Karachiites
The Sindh Chief Secretary (CS) Ejaz Qureshi has taken serious notice of the allotment of billions of rupees worth of land in the city at highly concessional rates to “favourites” during the last few days of the Sindh government and directed the authorities concerned to stop this illegal practice immediately.
Sources disclosed that the CS took action on Saturday after receiving reports that the Board of Revenue (BoR) and scrutiny committee have cleared 150 cases of illegal allotment of worthy city land in just one month on the directives of Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim. (The News.)
The chief minister is part of the government set-up that the general has hailed as a success. It’s a good thing that this government wasn’t any more successful.
