The protestors pleaded to the chief justice and the prime minister to take notice of this issue.
Supreme Court’s Verdict Impacts on Bahria Town Karachi & Real Estate Sector
As per Supreme Court’s Verdict, all funds and installments will remain in control of Supreme Court till the matter of illegal land swap remains unresolved. Bahria Town Karachi is facing a severe financial crises and badly short with funds and that is why all lights go off in Bahria Town Karachi. Moreover it is feared that over 45,000 employees of the Bahria Town may face delays in their salaries. Contractors are also not getting paid and various contracts worth millions of rupees have been cancelled.
The promise to create 100,000 jobs by the organization may also not be realized. All restoration and development work has come to a halt. For work to continue, the Bahria Town desperately needs funds. These funds are awaiting the SC’s final verdict on the matter. Till then all projects of the Bahria Town will remain closed.
One of the biggest supports to Pakistan’s economy is the business community and the remittances by overseas Pakistanis who tend to invest mostly in properties.
Supreme Court is unwisely getting into complex issues that will lead to disastrous impacts on economy, destroys lives of millions of ordinary citizens, grind down overseas investor confidence and kill Government’s housing plan before birth.
