WEB DESK: The newly nominated mayor of Karachi, Waseem Akhtar, lamented the utter lack of powers given to the mayor of the city, by the Sindh government while talking to the media at the Karachi Airport on Friday, Aaj News reported.
“I want to work on the water shortage, transport and infrastructure of the city, but I am amazed that the mayor has been given no powers to work in the local bodies election. How will the party deliver?,” he said.
He invited the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Jamat-e-Islami to work with the MQM to establish peace in the city.
Talking about Rangers powers in Sindh he said, “Rangers should be granted power that the constitution gives it. Nothing more, nothing less.”
He added that the the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, along with the representatives from the Pakistan People’s Party will go to Chief Minister, Qaim Ali Shah, in order to sort out issues. “If he does not agree we will go to the Supreme Court. We have faith in the court. But even if the Supreme Court gives a ruling against us, we have the support of our people, our voters who voted for us.
