Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar on Tuesday (August 27) suspended Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal as the city’s ‘Project Director Garbage’, mere hours after the former mayor was assigned the post to help clean up the metropolis.
Speaking to media, Akhtar said he had “suspended Mustafa Kamal from his post as Karachi’s Project Director Garbage until further orders”, less than 24 hours after Kamal was designated as Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s (KMC) ‘Project Director Garbage’ to rid the city of garbage in 90 days.
“Instead of coming to the office and [working], Mustafa Kamal is busy with political point scoring,” a visibly enraged Akhtar said. “My sincerity was taken advantage of and used for politics. This means you [Mustafa Kamal] were not sincere in solving the problems of Karachi,” he added.
Earlier after accepting Karachi Mayor’s challenge, Mustafa Kamal has vowed to work on war-footings for three months to clean Karachi. Talking to media, in the wee hours of Tuesday night in Asghar Ali Shah Stadium he has said he will not take any help from the federal government. He said he summoned three KMC officers in the meeting but they were allegedly stopped by Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhtar.
