What has Karachi done to deserve the kind of treatment it is getting? It is Pakistan’s largest city, its economic and industrial hub, the capital of Sindh and one of the world’s major cities. Karachi contributes over 60% revenue to the national budget and some 90% to the provincial budget. However, it continues to lack in basic amenities such as mass transport, water supply, a sewerage system, housing for the people, a proper city road network and general city management.
The key people in the PTI government from the President and Prime Minister down, all got elected from Karachi. It is highly unlikely they will be elected again.
