Mayor Waseem Akhtar got emotional with tears on Monday while addressing the last presser of his tenure, claiming that the Sindh government didn’t let us do the development work in the city. “I have been “crying” for the last four years over Karachi’s administrative issues, but neither the president, nor the prime minister, chief secretary or local government minister responded to any of his letters”, he complained, adding that he had written “thousands” of letters. The mayor stated while addressing the media at the head office of Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC), that he had come to power with a mandate larger than the one secured by the Sindh chief minister. He deplored that despite having that mandate, no one has been listening to him.“I am not being dramatic.

You have set up business here after coming from different districts adding that it has been Paris for you. I have seen the houses you have bought in Defence and Clifton. Why are you inflicting torture on the people of the city?”, he askedTalking about his performance in limited respources Akhtar told that the 62-acre Kidney Hill Park had been opened for public from Wednesday.
