  Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar said that weak local government system caused obstacle in the progress of the country and increase in citizens problems. Unfortunately two big parties ruled the country for a long term, however despite of having strengthening of municipal system in their manifesto none of them paid attention on making this system powerful . No policy can achieved any result without giving powers to the local bodies. He said this while talking to a delegation comprising participants of 24th Civil Services Course which called on him in his office on Monday. Mayor Karachi said that these big parties have their vote bank in the rural areas of the country and they can’t afford going against the wishes of landlords. If local government system gets powerful it would shift the powers to the grass root level which is not approved by the landlords and proprietors. He said the Prime Minster of Pakistan has spoke about strengthening of local bodies system in my opinion this needs uniform system in the country. They did not taken into account its purpose while formulating the Sindh Local Government Act 2013 which is the basis of the municipal system and only gave its approval on the basis of majority votes. This act had in fact brought the local bodies in cities under the Sindh Government and t he resources also went to the government but the problems of citizens remain unsolved. The members of the delegation asked may questions about the present local government system and the problems of citizens in Karachi for which Mayor Karachi gave the answers.
