Citizens who identify people throwing trash around Karachi will be awarded Rs100,000,Saeed Ghani

Sindh Minister for Information Saeed Ghani on Tuesday announced that the provincial government will award Rs100,000 to the person who identifies people who throw garbage on the streets of Karachi.

Speaking at a press conference in Karachi, the minister announced two phone numbers where citizens can send videos of people throwing trash around the city through WhatsApp. Citizens will be able to send videos on 0300-0074296 and 0300-0084296.

He added that the identity of those who inform such incidents will be kept a secret.

The minister while talking to reporters said he had personally witnessed people purposely dumping heaps of garbage on roads and said that those who “claimed that they have inherited the city” were polluting Karachi.

“This is a conspiracy to damage the cleanliness drive,” Ghani said.

Ghani further said that the provincial government had to bear extra costs because of the people who choked sewerage lines and break the water pipes on purpose.

The minister added that in addition to garbage, debris was also dumped on roads that increased the pollution.

On Sunday, the Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah made similar remarks as Ghani and said “so-called friends of Karachi” had choked 24 dia sewers in the city’s Malir 15 area by placing boulders and stones which would have led to leakage to sewerage water on the city’s main roads.

The Sindh government last week started a cleanliness drive after facing criticism over failure to clean the city.
