After studying #GutterBaghicha, it’s maps and several old documents it was very sad to learn that #MQM has its biggest share in the encroachment of the largest green space of Asia. The #PPP stands on second position.
Gutter Baghicha well of 1938
During MQM and PPP coalition governments SITE illegally allotted Gutter Baghicha land to 10 factories. These factories hv been allotted land in 200feetWide Altaf Barelvi Road. @DFSMQM was MQM mayor back the and SITE was under PPP ministry.
This is how the Altaf Barailvi Road has been blocked.
The plot numbers over which these illegal factories are situated have been notified as illegal in various governmental investigation reports.
So this is the illegal factory that is situated over Altaf Barailvi Road of Gutter Baghicha adjacent to TP-1.
This was leased in between 1989 to 1992. MQM and PPP both were in coalition back then.

Surprised to see such biased reporting by Samaa that too, more astonishingly, was picked up @SamaaEnglish. 😳
I have covered this project since it’s inception. The reporter needs to get his facts straight and emotions at home.
> Feb 26 then PM @NawazSharifMNS laid down the foundation for the Green Line BRT
>The project was supposed to be completed by April 27
>I kept a close eye on its construction process.
>Due to Sindh govt's bureaucratic red tape the federal govt mandated KIDCL faced several hiccups in the project's construction.
>The project was initially planned to be constructed from Surjani Town to Guru Mandir, where it was supposed to join the Blue Line BRT.

@aadilayub explained a major flaw in the EIA report of revamping and restoration of the Gujjar, Orangi and Mehmoodabad Nullah project, which has created a massive political chaos in the city.
This thread will make you understand the seriousness of NDMA, Sepa
A glance at the EIA report is enough to point out huge blunders. This EIA is for a project which is depriving thousands of families from their roofs. The company has charged millions of rupees to prepare this report. The NDMA has accepted it and submitted it to Sepa
Sepa is supposed to conduct public hearings. It manages it and takes into account grievances of affected people and loopholes in the EIA report pointed out by academia and civil society. This was one of its kind hearing, the Sepa official jumped in support of the report.

Participants of a public hearing held on Tuesday to discuss the revamping and restoration of the Gujjar, Orangi and Mehmoodabad storm water drains walked out of it because representatives of the project’s main proponent, NDMA, were absent.…
Sepa was said to have carried out a farcical public hearing on the project because not only NDMA representatives but officials of the KMC under whose administrative control these drains fall, the KWSB whose sewage flows in these drains, and the SSWMB were also uncannily absent.
Sepa Deputy Director Imran Sadiq, who was conducting the public hearing, kept whispering about the whereabouts of NDMA officials with Sepa staff during the hearing, and was visibly irked by their absence.

Participants walked out of public hearing of Gujjar, Orangi and Mehmoodabad Nullah projects over the absence of NDMA, @KmcPakistan @sswmb
The public hearing continued with literary six participants and seven Seepa officials.
So this is the public hearing of three projects which have already displaced thousands of families. Journalists and reporters are to be blamed as well. I was the only reporter covering this hearing - why the electronic media don’t event bother to send their reporters. Image
@ExpressNewsPK @etribune @Roznama_Express was just two-minute walk away from the venue of the public hearing.
