Naya Pakistan a menace to Edhi’s legacy, says Bilawal after Edhi shades demolished by KMC

Pakistan People’s Party Chairman (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday said that not even the legacy of Abdul Sattar Edhi was safe in ‘Naya Pakistan’, adding that he will be stepping up work with all stakeholders on a feasible, practical and progressive master plan for Karachi.

The PPP chairman’s expressed these thoughts in tweets that were in response to journalist Amar Guriro’s tweet in which he had said, “Edhi Foundation will no more provide ambulance service to Karachi as 10 Edhi shade across city and portions of three centres demolished by Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) on the name of encroachment that affects 70 per cent of communication system used to operate ambulances.”

The journalist also tweeted a link of his story where he spoke to Faisal Edhi regarding the anti-encroachment drive in the city.

“I have the mandate of the people of this province. I hold my head in shame that we have been unable to protect the poor and the helpless from this heartless so-called anti-encroachment drive. What does it say about us that not even Edhi’s legacy is secure in Naya Pakistan?” Bilawal tweeted.

 

“Those who are supposed to safeguard our rights and provide justice are unfortunately complicit in this atrocity. I’ve demanded Sindh Govt pass legislation mandating relocation, rehabilitation and compensation take place BEFORE any eviction,” said Bilawal.

“Also to explore all legislative options to protect Karachi’s poor and vulnerable. To protect Karachi’s cultural and historical heritage. It’s living heritage. Will also be stepping up work with all stakeholders on a feasible, practical & progressive master plan for Sindh’s capital,” Bilawal added.
