Mohsin Sheikhani, Chairman Association of Builders and Developers of Pakistan (ABAD), has demanded of the federal government to appoint new administrator of Karachi from business community for better results.
He was addressing a reception in honor of him and Federal Minister for Planning, Development , Reforms and Special Initiatives Asad Umar organized by Vanthali Memon Association at All Pakistan Memon Federation Auditorium.
A large number of people from Memon community and members of ABAD were present on this occasion. PTI MNA Shakoor Shah and PTI MPAs Ramzan Ghanchi and Jawed Siddiqui were also present.
Mohsin Sheikhani said that we are feeling that during last twenty years political parties are losing confidence of people that is the reason why the government should involve persons from private sector into administrative matters directly for better results.
He gave example of Lahore Development Authority (LDA) where a businessman S. M. Imran was appointed as Vice Chairman and he has done a good job including reviving decades-old Ravi Riverside project and any builder or developer could get NOC within 45 days.
However, he continued, that present government, especially Prime Minister Imran Khan is taking keen interest for reviving economy, especially construction industry which can create thousands of jobs and GDP growth.
He said that ABAD has always played positive role for the betterment of society and we are ready to play our role in Karachi Infrastructure Restoration Project.
He said that Asad Umar is trying his best to serve Karachi and we need more people like him in Federal Cabinet.
Chairman ABAD thanked and appreciated Vanthali Memon Association for their social activities.
Speaking on this occasion Federal Minister Asad Umar said that the federal government is focusing on construction industry because this is the only industry when it booms dozens of other allied industries are also booming and creating thousands of jobs and shelter for people.
He said that the Karachi Infrastructure Restoration Committee is working in right direction and soon National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) will start working in Karachi so people could get better civic facilities.
