Shahbaz in Karachi

In Karachi, sweepers have not been paid salaries for months and garbage has been accumulating on the streets for days, endangering the lives and health of taxpayers.
The Sindh government (which should really be called a ‘non-government’) has a huge budget (Rs680 billion), but no one has been able to find out how and on what this money is spent. After six years of misgovernance by the present lot, Karachi has been turned into the world's dirtiest city, compared to Lahore, which in my opinion is now the world's cleanest city. I would request Nawaz Sharif that before spending billions on the Karachi Green Bus and Karachi-Lahore motorway, he should loan us the services of his talented brother Shahbaz Sharif for six months. I am sure the latter will change the face of Karachi beyond recognition.
