Pakistan Prime Minis­ter Imran Khan on Saturday announced an ambitious Rs1,113 billion package for the development of the country’s financial capital and set up a coordination and implementation committee led by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to bring all “stakeholders and authorities” together to make key decisions, remove hurdles and ensure their implementation.

While Prime Minister Khan made it clear that the fund was set up with contribution from both the federal and provincial governments, it is not immediately clear what the exact share of each side is.

During his visit a week after the record monsoon rains wreaked havoc on Karachi’s infrastructure, the prime minister appeared to be politically accommodating. Unlike the past, Mr Khan not only gave credit to “everyone” in the fight against coronavirus but also made CM Shah head of the committee, which will oversee the Rs1,113bn package implementation, with representation from provincial and federal institutions.
