Zardari seeks resolution of Karachi Grammar School issue
Karachi: President Asif Ali Zardari has taken notice of the impending
commercialization of the area around the Karachi Grammar School (KGS),
Junior Section, and has instructed Sindh government to look into this
matter, it was learnt on Wednesday.
President's directives, a high-level meeting under the chairmanship of
the Chief Secretary, Sindh, Ghulam Ali Shah Pasha, was held at the Sindh
Secretariat on Wednesday.
Various aspects came up for discussion.
The participants were reportedly informed that over 22 streets had been
declared commercialized which was sure to increase traffic congestion in
the locality. It was stated that the school had received threats last
year and the commercialization should also be looked from this
perspective. The views about the environmental hazards arising from the
commercialisation were also reportedly exchanged. Legal issues or legal
lacunae behind declaring certain areas commercial were also debated. One
of the views purportedly came under discussion was as to whether the
area could be declared as de-commercialized and as to whether the
Administrator, Karachi, was empowered to do so.
Some of the
participants were of the view that City Council was entitled to declare
and de-notify any area as commercial or non-commercial. Some of the
participants reportedly opined that they should not become specific to
any area or institution, when it comes to the issue of
commercialization. Instead the decisions should be across the board.
were of the unanimous view that since the matter was pending in the
Sindh High Court (SHC), any decision in this regard would be taken in
view of the judgment of the court as reportedly around six petitions
were pending there.
It was stated that the SHC had issued
instructions to Sindh Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa) to carry
out Environmental Impact Assessment (AIA) on October 14, 2010. The
committee of experts concerned was formed whose report may be submitted
to the SHC soon.
Meanwhile, the Secretary, Local Government, Khurshid
Naeem Malik, one of the participants of the meeting said that
Sindh government was not in favour of the commercialisation of the
