Karachi’s New Year Resolutions

With 2007 approaching fast, many of us are once again starting to jot down our new year resolutions. For personal the general rule seems to be a bit better next year, not to repeat the same mistakes, and ofcourse, the ever-present, shed those last few pounds.

But what if we think on a city-wide level? Given the ‘breakneck’ speed of construction and beautification going around in karachi, coupled with the disasterous health issues and the declining living standards, what should be the new year resolutions of our elected officials?

As a countdown to the new year, we’ll post the top 5 resolutions which, in our opinion, should be taken up by the city officials for the upcoming year, starting from 26th Dec 2006.

As always, suggestions are welcome.

    I just want to tell them, please don’t dig roads if you can’t made them on time. And don’t make roads before asking all of the public service departments (i.e PTCL, KESC, KDA etc etc). The whole city is ruined they have dug all the roads and after digging they just don’t construct it as it was before. The roads that were constructed were ruined because of the rain ;). Lucky us. Please stop this! We can’t afford new cars every year ;). I hope this won’t be happening with roads in 2007.

    Resolution #1: Reform the city’s public transport culture and introduce proper light-rail-based mass transit

    The easiest to achieve will be to hire loads of janitors and cleaners to rid the streets of heaps of garbage, dust and removal of remnants of road works from foot paths.

    i want the city officals to relax a little,watch good movies,spend some quality time with THEIR families….because i believe they have already done more than enough in the past year,,,and i want all the people from karachi wherever they may be to realize that mega cities are great but we may find good people everywhere….in this God’s world….and that euphoria of being from a big city is NOT good…Merry Christmas!

    How about: Shoot mobile phone thieves on sight, both knees first and then one in the head for good measure?
