Ali Zaidi demands committee on anti-encroachment operation in Karachi
KARACHI: Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi on Sunday asked the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar to form a committee to monitor the anti-encroachment operation and to find out people behind such large scale illegal structures in Karachi.
Addressing a ceremony in Karachi, Ali Haider Zaidi alleged that the people who had backed the illegal constructions and made money, are now demolishing the encroachments in the city.
He urged the chief justice to visit Karachi to review the whole issue and form a committee to monitor the anti-encroachment operation in Karachi.
The minister also hailed the contribution of Memon and Khawaja community in national development and progress.
