The beauty of the metropolitan city Karachi has increased alot in past few years and for which the credit goes to the City Government’s unique ownership program ‘I Own Karachi’. Launched on 14th August 2008, the program aimed to bring positive change in the mindset of the people of Karachi. The city Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal openly invited all the residents of Karachi to come and register themselves with the City Government, he gave them the opportunity to become the ‘City Owners’.
More than 80 overhead bridges, underpasses and fly-overs were constructed just in the time span of just 2 years, which is actually a great achievement. The condition of the existing parks and recreational places has been improved while the city government has also made some new parks and places which add to the city’s beauty. Karachi is the biggest city of the country and it was once known as the city of lights, the City Owners are trying hard to help Karachi regain the status of the city of lights!

What we normally do is that we only criticize the government but with this program instead of criticizing Government, the people can actually step forward and bring positive change in the city. We can only progress and touch the peak of glory when we consider the public property as our own.Pakiology.com prays that may Pakistan and the city of Karachi flourish more and more with every passing day. Pakistan Zindabad!!
