Karachi (HRNW) More people could be evicted over March as the Sindh government scrambles to clear the last five kilometers of the Karachi Circular Railway ahead of an April meeting in Beijing when it will ask China to pay for it under CPEC.
These people will be rehabilitated on railway land, where houses will be built where possible.
KCR has not been working for many years and people have built on its tracks. Out of 38km, 33km have been cleared and only five kilometers are left, according to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah. He held a meeting with Railways Minister Shaikh Rasheed on Monday when several key decisions were made to get KCR operational.
