Pakistanis, barring few exceptions, are not sensitive to the dire need for building infrastructure: roads, parking lots, public rest rooms, and walk-ways for pedestrians, modern energy and water supply systems, hospitals and so on. One of the most menacing developments is rapid rise in the vehicular traffic in the metropolitan cities of Pakistan like Karachi, Lahore, lslamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta. Take for example the financial hub of Pakistan, Karachi. There are banks, hotels, business centres but no parking space for the cars. The result is choking of the thoroughfares, which are already bursting on the seams. And the cars parked in a disorganised fashion in public places lead to chaos and hamper movement of people on foot. There are few, if any, heads of local government who have given so much attention to the construction of infrastructure than Syed Mustafa Kamal, the Mayor of Karachi. The result is that the city of Karachi wears a new look. His emphasis on the improvement of roads, building of by-passes and now the parking spaces is exemplary for others. For parking, there is hardly any space left in the Karachi citys business district, so he is trying the only option of building underground parking, a practice which is in vogue all over the world. This most recent initiative of the mayor is the first-ever project of construction of underground parking close to a five-star hotel. Hotels are the face of a country. These are direct contributors to trade, industry, commerce, tourism and sports. In the absence of international class hotels, how can the visitors from overseas come to Pakistan, is the key question. And here we should also commend the initiatives of the Mayor of Karachi in building public infrastructure. Time has come that we refrain from finger-pointing against those who are making great sacrifices for service to their motherland. We must think and revisit what we hear and see before we start public criticism of nation-building schemes that include the construction of parking spaces in order not to tax the already tight over-ground land availability situation and at the same time reduce road traffic congestion.
