The Mayor stressed that the City Council will offer legal protection and permission for the World Bank’s investments and related matters, according to the news outlet. Speaking to the pressing matter of Karachi’s lack of clean water, Mayor Wahab emphasized the need to set up reverse osmosis (RO) facilities. He suggested that in order to greatly reduce the city’s water scarcity, a RO plant should be installed in each ward.
In his office, he made these remarks in the presence of KMC Council Parliamentary Leader Najmi Alam, who was also part of a three-person World Bank team. During the meeting, Abedalrazq Khalil, the head of the World Bank delegation and the Practice Manager for World Bank Urban and Land for South Asia, was briefed on the development projects in Karachi. He conveyed the World Bank’s desire to fund these initiatives.
Mayor Wahab emphasized that there are significant issues with water and sewage that the Karachi municipal government is now facing. He emphasized that setting up RO plants is the best way to deal with the problem of water scarcity since it will guarantee a steady supply of clean water for the populace. In addition, the installation of RO plants is anticipated to supply the people living in Karachi’s impoverished regions with clean drinking water.
