'No one will be allowed to encroach upon the parks,' he said.

Sheeraz Waheed of the MQM said Rs50 million were given by the government for lifting of garbage in the Korangi district but the state of affairs was shameful and pathetic.

Mr Shoro said the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board (SSWMB) had started lifting garbage in South and East districts while Korangi was being paid from the octroi and zila tax share.

'If Korangi Council passes a resolution and authorises the Sindh government to lift garbage, the responsibility can be given to the SSWMB,' he added.

Ghazala Sial of the PPP talked about encroachment at Musafir Khana, situated at Faizabad Colony, Khairpur Mirs district. Transport Minister Nasir Hussain told her that the issue was not his ministry's domain and the local administration was responsible for setting up a taxi stand there.

Nadeem Razi of the MQM, who had joined the PSP, drew attention of the house towards dilapidated condition of the road from Malir Halt to Malir City where accidents took place regularly.

Local Government Minister Jam Khan Shoro said it was the responsibility of the KMC to construct a road there.

'The Sindh government has made 100 per cent payment of its estimated cost of Rs800 million to the KMC. It has even paid additional amount to the KMC for laying sewer lines and given it three months to reconstruct the road.'
