PTI government is garnering praise on social media for finally initiating a host of development projects in Karachi. Pictures emerged on Twitter showing previously battered roads in Karachi undergoing construction.

Last year, Imran Khan dedicated Rs 1.1 trillion to the Karachi Transformation Plan which aims to transform the megacity by launching 100 projects. The Plan was launched in the aftermath of the August 27 heavy rains which wreaked havoc in the city, flooding residents’ homes and causing loss of lives.

When the announcement for Karachi’s development was made, many people were doubtful about its implementations, however, PTI seems to be delivering its promise of re-constructing Karachi.
