KARACHI: The representatives of Korangi Association of Trade and Industries (KATI) on Wednesday told the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan that PTI Karachi does not pay heed to their grievances.
This was expressed in a talk that the PTI leader was invited to, by the business community of Karachi. Former KATI president Rashid Ahmed Siddiqui told Imran Khan that Dr Arif Alvi, the only elected PTI Member National Assembly (MNA) from Karachi, vanished after being elected and was not seen anywhere in the last five years.
He added that their issues were never resolved by the PTI, despite the fact that they voted the party in power. Khalid Tawwab, another former president, said that the popularity of the party has significantly declined in the city because of the fact that their problems were never heard.
The PTI chief admitted that since he was focused on fighting a ‘mafia’, he could not pay attention to the civic issues of the city and that only an elected mayor can solve the issues of the city. He said that the importance of the city is undeniable as it is the financial hub of the country.
Imran Khan reached Karachi on Wednesday on a four-day visit. He is due to attend the party’s membership camp at Malir today and then address a workers’ convention at 5pm.
