‘City gets 10,000 migrant workers daily’ – 10 Nov 2022


The promise of jobs and prosperity, among other factors, pulls people to cities

KARACHI:
More than 10,000 people from other cities of the country come to Karachi every day for employment, which always puts pressure on this city, Administrator Karachi Barrister Murtaza Wahab said on Wednesday.

The promise of jobs and prosperity, among other factors, pulls people to cities, talking to the 49th Specialized Training Programme and 25th Command Course officers of the Police Department visiting the KMC Head Office.

Urban areas can grow from increased human populations or migration into urban areas, which in turn puts pressure on resources, he said . Human activities such as burning fossil fuels and industrial waste, also increase environmental pollutants that can affect the health of people, flora and fauna, he said talking to the 49th Specialized Training Programme and 25th Command Course officers of the Police Department visiting the KMC Head Office.

“The infrastructure needs to be further improved. If government work is stopped, problems arise. Sindh is the only province where no one, including the Chief Minister and the cabinet, is allowed to allotment of land.

The honourable court banned the land allotment, which is causing problems to the citizens of Karachi,” The Administrator said speaking on the occasion of the 49th Specialized Training Program and 25th Command Course officers of the Police Department visiting the KMC Head Office.
