Korangi flyover was scheduled to be inaugurated by Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah, Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhtar, and Minister for Local Government Jam Shoro Khan on a ceremony today, Sunday. However, the officials failed to show at the assisted spot due to which, locals of the area inaugurated the new and much awaited flyover.
Karachi Metropolitan Officials (KMC) along with the residents of the area kept waiting for the concerned authorities to arrive and begin the ceremony, but none of them graced the event with their presence.
After much wait, a man from the public cut the ribbon, thus officially inaugurating the flyover for traffic.
The man who dared to officiate the flyover after hours of wait stated:
“Sindh CM should have come for the inauguration. But the right should be given to the public as it is theirs and made for them.”
The Korangi flyover’s construction had been completed a long time ago, but was still not inaugurated due to unknown reasons.
