City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal has said that so far not even a single penny has been received from any level for restoration of arson hit buildings and rehabilitation of affected traders. People in Karachi were repairing and reconstructing these buildings on self help basis. Following the steps of CDGK contractors, Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) has now taken the responsibility of reconstructing 400 damaged and gutted shops and ware houses of Quetta Market on which work would begin from Saturday.

He expressed these views while talking to the media representatives during a visit to inspect the restoration work at Boulton Market on Friday. Officer bearers of ABAD accompanied him on this occasion.

City Nazim said that ABAD would restore the building to its original state and all the shopkeepers would get their premises after completion of work. City Nazim also thanked members and office bearers of ABAD for taking part in the noble cause. He further said that ABAD would bear all the expenses incurred on the reconstruction of Quetta Building.

Talking to media ABAD Chairman Farooq-uz-Zaman said that ABAD has decided to take part in the rehabilitation work of the affected commercial center of Karachi. He said that we will try to finish this work as soon as possible after that all the shops will be handed over to the owners.

Meanwhile City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal has again appealed to the administration of private schools to wave off six months fee of the children of affected traders of MA Jinnah Road and the martyrs of bomb blast in Ashura possession. During the visit of Boulton Market with ABAD delegation, he said that the affectees were facing acute financial hardships and this is the duty of every citizen to help and support them in their hour of need. He again said that if the private schools could not exempt the children of affected traders and martyrs than city government would itself pay the fee of children.
