Later on Mr. Raheel Haroon Chairman BTDA was speaking to BizToday correspondent and said; we have agreed to support BMG for upcoming KCCI elections due to the reason that BMG is a nice and strong group with lots of credibility. BMG has served business community before and we are hopeful that they will deliver again”.
He further said; “real estate sector is very vital for boom of country’s economy, as whenever real estate sector booms it brings boom to its allied sectors like construction sector, property development sector, steel sector, cement sector to name a few”.
When asked about the reason why there was lack of investment in real estate sector, he said; “Ishaq Dar former Finance Minister is mainly responsible for lack of investment in the real estate sector. His policies were very unfriendly towards investors and distracted many investors”.
When asked about the reason for support BMG, BTDA Chairman said; “our problems and issues like dealing with SRB weren’t addressed properly before and we were looking for a suitable platform for this purpose. We also sent to FPCCI, where I was made Chairman of standing committee on real estate but that didn’t help much so we decided for this move and we are promised for support after elections”.
Speaking on current scenario regarding Bahria Town, he said; “Icon Tower by Bahria Town is truly an iconic structure right and in further will stand as an icon of our beloved Karachi. It also has ‘Mall of Karachi’ which is expected to open for public within six months. All the construction work at Bahria Town Karachi is heading in the right way very smoothly”.
