The 100-day cleanliness campaign launched by Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar in December 2016 ended on Friday without any positive outcome.

The mayor claims to have removed 0.25 million tonnes of garbage from Central District’s six union councils despite citizens complaining of the littered streets.

Residents of Federal B Area, North Nazimabad, Liaquatabad, Burns Road, Lines Area, Mahmoodabad, Tariq Road, East District and North Karachi expressed dissatisfaction as their areas were not touched during the campaign.

Nevertheless, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) chief Farooq Sattar’s constituency UC 19 has been cleaned of garbage, constituting the 10 to 30 percent work done under the campaign.

According to sources, Sindh government asserts to have spent Rs400 million in Korangi, Rs230 million in District East and Rs100 million in Central District for proper sewerage system and infrastructure.

On the other hand, Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz volunteered to provide full assistance to Sindh government in cleaning the city in a drive that will be launched from Monday.
