Rs 200m needed to repair KMC cleaning machines

KARACHI: Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) Machinery Pool Depot Director Noman Arshad said on Thursday that around Rs 200 million were required for proper maintenance of cleaning machineries and vehicles in order to meet the demand of the city. “Though we have adequate machinery and vehicles, but the problem lies with lack of funds for their maintenance as around 40 percent of the vehicles were idle for several years that had developed some faults. These were bought during the tenure of former mayor Mustafa Kamal,” he said. He said that KMC desperately needed all these machines on roads and streets as Eidul Azha was fast approaching. KMC workers had to work day in and day out to clear all the garbage before Eid to provide relief to the citizens. If KMC had even 100 vehicles in working condition it would be able to meet the demand of the Eid cleaning. The director said that a summary request for reimbursement of funds was sent to the Sindh government and it was hoped that a positive response would be seen.
