Federal Minister Ali Zaidi briefed on the second phase of the Clean Karachi initiative which will focus on lifting all the garbage from the garbage dumps, which will later be transported to landfill sites.
He further urged the local residents of the city to help identify all such sites, so the government can take necessary measures to clean them.
Prime Minister Imran Khan, in close partnership with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-led local government, directed the Clean Karachi campaign to be kicked off. Federal institutions like Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) and the National Logistics Cell helped in this drive.
