Authorities in Karachi have called for a remodelling of Sea View in line with the standards of foreign beaches, the remodelling plan calls for a jogging track for public in addition to 13 acres of grass to be planted to ensure there’s greenery on the beach and work has already begun.
As the news reached the masses, it wasn’t met with the enthusiasm expected and people have a lot to say!
Gari chalanay ko road nahi hai, peenay ko paani nahi hai, bahanay ko sewerage nahi hai, koi local transport nahi hai, darakht nahi hain, qanoon nahi hain lekin khair hai bc samundar tou hai na https://t.co/WadFWGakmb

People wanted to know who asked for it:
We don't have a public transport system. Or water. Or electricity. Or a functioning sewerage system. A garbage disposal system. A functioning local governance.
What I am trying to say is, who asked for this? https://t.co/9ZnPr8hdGl

But with Halal Burqas instead of Bikinis. https://t.co/vt74s27lJ0

Some wanted to know what the remodelling means:
Just the sheer incompetency oozing out of this tweet.
How do we make beaches better?
Make them like “foreign beaches”
What the hell does that even mean? https://t.co/DvUTEtPw8O

He’s got a point!
Sounds like a great initiative but how about DHA and CBC stop dumping raw sewage in the sea. That would have a far greater impact than these cosmetic changes in which I'm sure some commercial aspect is involved but not yet being revealed. These people will never learn!

Some weren’t happy!
What this means is "awaam se yeh sasti tafree bhi cheen rahe hain taa kay DHA development kar sakay. Awaam can fuck off". https://t.co/IsuEQvHwcv
