The amount of garbage produced in Karachi leads to about 9 to 10 thousand tonnes on an average day.

KARACHI: Leading a drive for a cleaner Karachi, MQM Deputy Parliamentary leader Farooq Sattar said that, it is important to keep the environment clean for the overall health of the people.

The 15-day cleaning campaign named Greener and Healthier is aimed to improve the health and hygiene standards, Sattar told media after commencing the campaign at the Souq Centre.

He further said that Karachi needs a sum of Rs20 billion to remove garbage from the city. He said the amount of garbage produced in the metropolis is around 9-10 thousand tonnes on an average day.

Sattar further said that the city government has now launched a drive from June 16-30 to improve the sanitary conditions and improve the citys environment.

Sindh Environment Minister Sheikh Muhammad Afzal said that the civic departments do not have the capacity to pick up more than 30 per cent of the total waste that is produced in the city. He added that almost six tonnes of waste is not collected every day and 180 tonnes of left-over waste is piled up in the city every month.

phuff.. crusade was a word before the so called christian crusade started in 13th century...... and literal meaning is the one i gave u.... and possibly a one word english translation of jihad will be crusade... because its a cmmon practice for politicians to say

gandagee ke khilaf jihad, mehungayee ke khilaf jihad etc etc..... so rightly said crusade against xyz...

so my bashing lectures still is valid.. why do people find it soo difficult to accept their mistakes and learn

He didnt use the word crusade the newspaper did. And crusade doesnt mean war against Muslims. In the english language it also means any step taken to fix a certain problem with vigour and determination

Sattar saheb! on the surface it looks so wonderful and great.

But you are going about it all the wrong way. Set up Waste management companies on private level. let them do the burying and recycling of trash.

Starting a crusade is just a media ploy and you know where this campaign will end up - in the trash

yonus: The word 'crusade' doesnt mean Crusader. Crusade in this context means a campaign in full force
