KARACHI - City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal handed over keys of 9 restored and renovated shops to the owners of the arson-hit buildings at Light House on Tuesday. He said that restoration work at remaining 20 markets would also begin as soon as the buildings are handed over to City Government after the assessment of amount of damage. He also laid the foundation stone for the reconstruction of damaged Quetta Market. He said this while addressing a huge gathering at the handing over of shops in 9 restored markets to their owners. DCO Karachi Javed Hanif Khan, Saddar Town Nazim Muhammed Dilawar, M.D KESC Tabish Gohar and large number of affected traders and people were also present on this occasion. City Nazim said that from the first day he was sure that we would soon succeed in restoration and rehabilitation of affected commercial center at M.A Jinnah Road. So far all the rehabilitation work has been done by the people of Karachi on self support basis as not a single penny has been received in this head from the provincial or federal government. He said that the government formalities took their time and he expected early payment of announced relief to affected shopkeepers. He said though bomb blasts occurred all over the country but the people in Karachi by taking part in the whole process of rehabilitation of affectees set a unique example for such events in Pakistan. He said that this incident had a lesson for us, adding that we have seen people here crying vehemently after they were deprived of their earnings over one night. The critics had tried to put all the responsibility of incident on us by libeling all kinds of charges but we left this matter on Almighty Allah who knows better. He said that it was only due to the availability of effective surveillance system. The law enforcement agencies today are following the criminals on the basis of their pictures in video footage. We have provided 72 hour long video footage before and after the incident recorded by the City Governments Command and Control Room to police and all intelligence agencies. He said that the people of Karachi knew well about their friends and enemies as they successfully thwarted the evil designs of anti state forces with their mutual harmony and unity. M.D KESC Tabish Gohar on this occasion announced to wave off 4 months electricity bill of the affected traders and distribution of 10 thousand energy savers in the affectees.
