KARACHI: To highlight the problems faced by common citizens in Karachi,Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Central Joint Secretary Alamgir Khan has launched a campaign against the ‘Sleeping Beauties‘ in Karachi.
“I have launched a campaign against the Sleeping Beauties in Karachi. I will try to highlight every single problematic thing faced by Aam Aadmi (common man) of Karachi. And definitely I alone can’t make it. I urge all young Karachiites to join me in this cause,” he said in a message posted on social media.
Potholed roads, unkempt sidewalks, garbage-strewn streets and clogged drains are common in the metropolis due to ineffectual policing of the provincial government.
The basic aim of the movement is to push the Sindh government to come out of deep slumber and do its job.
Khan accompanied by a team of supporters spray painted Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah‘s face on the roads to bring attention to unattended issues around the city under the “Sleeping Beauty – please wake up” campaign.
“Eat it! As poor children do,” said one of the signs near a pile of garbage on a street corner. On the other hand, the Sindh government has made no comment on the campaign yet.
