Lack of cleaning at New Sabzimandi pose health risks for Karachiites
The market committee’s indifference to the cleanliness of New Sabzimandi has exacerbated the situation. Internal lanes are cluttered with unplanned extensions, while rotting fruits and vegetables litter the area. According to the traders at the mandi, the presiding committee collects a generous sum of money annually by charging the traders a fee for setting up shop at the mandi. In fact, the vehicles that deliver fresh produce to the mandi are also charged an entry fees. In total, the committee earns quite a handsome sum, none of which is utilized to ensure the cleanliness of the area.
