The problem of parking plazas at Bara-Dari and Saddar, which are claimed by both local bodies, was investigated. The minister directed the parties to discontinue their pending lawsuits surrounding the subject after hearing both sides.
The KDA was also instructed to drop their claim and hand over the Bara-Dari parking lot to the KMC, according to the minister. Similarly, the KDA was given back the parking plaza in Sadar-Karachi.
