PM Abbasi announces Rs25bn development package for Karachi

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is likely to arrive in Karachi on Saturday (today).

Abbasi will later chair a meeting on Karachi's law and order situation at Governor House.

Speaking about the recent controversial law that repealed the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO) 1999 in Sindh, the prime minister said that the law needs to be reviewed. Prime Minister Abbasi assured the governor that the federal government would continue to cooperate with the Sindh government in development projects.

The prime minister added that he had resigned from the Air Blue board of directors on July 28 to serve the country in the public office.

Syed Murad Ali Shah also called on the premier in Karachi this afternoon. The two representatives discussed collaboration, coordination and cooperation between the federal and provincial units.

PM told Sindh Chief Minister to play his role to improve the link between local, provincial and federal bodies.

The governor briefed him on the initiatives taken for the development and confidence of the business community.

The premier in his first-ever visit after assuming the charge will pay a visit to the Quaid's mausoleum, ahead of the seventieth independence day.

He also held meetings with leaders from Muttahidda Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) and Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP).

The new prime minister commenced his trip by visiting the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, where he laid a floral wreath.

Shahid Abbasi said all the political parties should join hands to ensure peace and security in the city.
