KARACHI: Paksarzameen Party (PSP) chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal has accepted Karachi Mayor Wasim Ahktar’s challenge to serve as ‘Project Director Garbage’ and help in cleaning Sindh’s capital.
In a notification issued on Monday from the mayor’s office, Wasim Akhtar had designated Mustafa Kamal as the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s (KMC) ‘Project Director Garbage’, offering him to help clean the city in 90 days.
The notification issued by mayor’s office stated, ” Syed Mustafa Kamal has shown his willingness to clean the city of Karachi within 90 days of time. I being Mayor of Karachi hereby designate Syed Mustafa Kamal as Project Director Garbage on a voluntary basis with immediate effect and until further order.”
Mustafa Kamal had earlier held Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar responsible for the city’s condition. He had claimed that he would show how to clean the city if given back the same powers for only 90 days.
Waseem Akhtar designated Kamal as ‘Project Director Garbage’ following the PSP chairperson’s claim.
Accepting the challenge, Kamal thanked Karachi Mayor for giving him the authority to clean Karachi’s garbage. He said that he had accepted the order, following which he was in charge of the solid waste disposal in central, east, west, and Korangi districts of Karachi.
Mayor Karachi summoned Mustafa Kamal to his office on Tuesday, saying that his staff would brief Kamal regarding the situation.
