Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar on Saturday has said that Karachi has no resources to resolve the civic issues that people of this megacity were facing.

Speaking at a ceremony at Liaquatabd Sarafa Market, he said, "We want to serve the city, but the lack financial resources were restricting us from doing so." He, however, said that the sewage problem in various Liaquatabad UCs had already been resolved and now, road carpeting work would be carried out to facilitate the residents.

The mayor further said that the laying of sewage line would facilitate 42,000 residents of the five union committees in Liaquatabad, adding that the sewage line and street carpeting work was done in six months with a cost of Rs40 million.

He also said a new sewage line would be laid from Dak Khana Liaquatabad to Liaquatabad No.10 besides street carpeting over 125,000 square feet area. He said, "We know the city's problems but have no resources to solve them at once." He said the process of development works would continue as he wanted to serve people. He said that DMC Central was removing garbage with its resources in Liaquatabad and situation has improved a lot now.
