Resolution 5: A greener Karachi. A cleaner Karachi

There’s a lot for the CDGK and authorities in charge of the city to do, and the list of resolutions can be endless, the last resolution that KMB proposes is that of a greener and cleaner Karachi.
The city authorities has done quite a lot for the beautification of the city lately with developments of new parks, fountains etc but what will be really appreciated is an effective garbage disposal system. In lot of areas, we see piles of garbage dumped on roadsides and drains overflowing.
Lets hope 2007 brings an end to that.

    lets hope that it happens.
    There are various plots at tariq road in block 2 PECHS that has turned into dumpsters. When complained to the authrities they just say that find the owner of the plot and tell him dont tell us”
    lets hope that karachi is turned into a green city and not a dumpster

    any one saw that programme aired on CNBC otherday in which Mujahid barelvi traveled with an NGO on boat to inspect condition on karachi harbor and deep sea… it was too much polluted and the color of water has changed to almost black and near landhi where all the slaughter house are located it has turned into red color… even the fishes and aquatic life is being affected coz of all this mess and its really a bleak situation …

    Some NGOs have made it a point to highlight problems in Pakistan to the world. Even General is against some of them. Only bad news about Pakistan sells.

    @Suhail a picture is better then 1000 words and a video is better then million words… if NGO is showing thousands of ton of the polluted waste being dumped into the sea live on TV and is asking the policy makers and stake holders of the city to do some thing about it then i don’t see any thing wrong with that… on the other hand i hate the attitude “don’t project the negative stuff about pakistan” well unless its not projected no one will do anything about it… the more its projected faster the problem will be rectified…

    as for our dictator … he only loves those NGOs which are helping his cause of enlighten moderation… and hates all the other NGOs….
    just look at the iraqi dictator’s fate… wagged his tail behind his American masters all his life and what he got in the end… our dictator will meet a similar fate

    CNBC is an international channel, if the NGO plays it on GEO, AAJ or PTV, i favour them.What i pointed out above is a bigger

    problem. some NGOs, paint such a bad pic of Pakistan and pakistani people that when you are an expat out of Pakistan, you feel

    just search Pakistan on google and read the pages. you will know what i mean. We have what we call an “IMAGE PROBLEM”. I

    have seen so many cultures in the world and i am proud to say many of our culture values are better than them, but when CNN,

    BBC , CNBC, TIME Warner, other foreign media, and these NGOs show something to the world, they only show, murders, rapes,

    illness , poverty etc. I dont want to explain more.Hope you got my point.
