KARACHI (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmed has on Friday said all provincial institutions are thieves in Sindh
Justice Gulzar Ahmed heard the case regarding encroachments at the Supreme Court Karachi Registry. During the hearing, he said that a building collapsed in Karachi, people died but no one showed any concern.
The chief justice said that the prime minister of New Zealand had not slept for a week. “Who is responsible for the deaths of people,” he asked. He also remarked that no company is properly working here, all are thieves.
The CJP inquired from Advocate General Sindh Salman Talibuddin about the progress in the Circular Railway project. The advocate general told the court that mass transit plan has been formed and the Green Line Bus and the Orange Line projects have been completed.
Justice Gulzar Ahmed responded that if the projects are completed then run the buses. He stressed that Karachi needs compact projects, tall buildings are made here on small plots and all obsolete buses of the country are being used.
Salman Talibuddin said action has been taken against all corrupt officers. Justice Sajjad Ali Shah remarked that all the steps that have been taken are fake.
Earlier, the Supreme Court has ordered Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed to make the Karachi Circular Railway operational within three months.
Hearing the railway deficit case on Wednesday, Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked that the Business Plan had told each thing, but did not tell how it will be implemented.
Minister for Planning Asad Umar told the court that it would be impossible to make the Karachi Circular Railway operational.
The chief justice remarked that the project would be delayed if it did not happen. “You should deliver. The railway authorities should not let their people sleep and order them to do work,” he ordered.
He remarked that all problems could be resolved if the railway sells its five properties.
Later, the court adjourned the case for two months.
Talking to the media after the hearing, Sheikh Raheed said that only one property could resolve all problems.
