KARACHI - City Nazim Mustafa Kamal has said that action against ghost employees in City government will continue and so far 350 ghost employees have been sacked on ground of their absconding from their duties. Officers who would not take action against such employees will also face disciplinary action, he warned while talking to media at CDGKs Iftar dinner. Nazim Karachi pointed out that while concerned officers remained stayed on roads during rains while lower staff despite of receiving salary for this job did not turn up which created problems. To a question, he said that illegal hydrant mafia had been involved in cutting of trunk lines and selling water to consumers. Therefore, it has now become necessary to save these trunk lines from them. Kamal was apprehensive that in case of any non-cooperation from police and rangers for closing down illegal water business, it would be difficult for KW&SB to supply water to citizens. The citizens, he emphasised, should own the City and abide by civic and traffic rules. He pointed out that world over people reduce the prices of items on religious occasions while here prices of daily use items are raised manifold especially in Ramazan. Government doesnt want to make anyone homeless but it is done only in the Citys and its citizens larger interest. It has become essential to remove encroachments from Gujjar Nullah and other major drains otherwise the citizens will have to face much trouble in future. No one can have valid lease of property constructed on the land originally earmarked for Nullah. Despite of this we have made a policy under which all the owners of such property would get 80 square yards plot and Rs50,000 as compensation, he added.
