Subject:        RESOLUTION. 

I am to state that the Provincial Assembly of Sindh in its sitting held on Monday, 07th October, 2019 has passed the following Resolution moved by Mr. Ghanwer Ali Khan Isran, MPA:

“This House resolves and recommends to the Government to approach the Federal Government to accord the highest priority to the Karachi Circular Railway Project (“KCR”). The KCR project was included in CPEC on the request of the Government of Sindh in the year 2016 & since then, the project has been diligently followed by the Government. It is noteworthy to state that so far several DO letters have been written by the Chief Minister to the Federal Government in the last 3 years, the most recent of which was written in August, 2019.

 

2. The Government of Sindh has participated in all the relevant technical forums relating to CPEC projects including the Joint Working Group (JWG) and 6th, 7th and 8th Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) meetings in Islamabad and in China held from 2017 to 2018. The Government of China’s representatives acknowledged the feasibility of KCR and agreed to include the same in its portfolio. It may be noted that it is Government of Sindh which is taking full responsibility for the loan and its repayment while the Federal Government is to only provide Sovereign Guarntees.

 

3. It has been reported that the Prime Minister of Pakistan on his upcoming visit to China will be engaging to secure financing for ML-1 (the Karachi to Peshawar Railway Track) and NOT KCR. Hence, again Karachi and the national development which is to be realized by investing in mass transport in Karachi will be ignored. It is stated KCR project by all means is a project of national importance and not only the people of Karachi but the entire country will benefit from the KCR project.

 

4. Further this House resolves that the first Right of Way on the 18 KM’s from Drigh Road to City Station and Karachi Port should be accorded to KCR in the best interest of the people of the city of Karachi. Moreover, an alternate route, preferably elevated track may be established by the Federal Government for the purposes of ML-1.

 

5. This House further implores and demands that the Prime Minister should make all endeavors to make the KCR project, a top priority in his forthcoming trip to China.”.
