Fahim Zaman, an activist and former administrator of the KMC, spoke extensively on the land acquisition act, regularisation of goths and the Goth Abad Scheme, according to which goths and villages which have been registered cannot be sold or given away.

He said that was what Orangi Pilot Project's Perween Rahman had been working on when she was shot dead in March 2013.


DAWN - Letters; 13 September, 2002

Mr Zaman has twice been at the helm of affairs of Karachi, both the times serving as an unelected mayor, and perhaps for that reason he has been against those elected by the people of Karachi.

Although a mass transit system for Karachi has been talked about for almost 40 years, it was only taken seriously in the early 1990s when with a grant from the Japanese government to the World Bank, its blueprints were completed.
...
Unfortunately, the establishment of the KMTA was not to the liking of some of the bureaucrats in Sindh secretariat and with the appointment of Fahim Zaman as administrator of the KMC (with full powers of mayor), the KMTA was abandoned as a stepchild and instead the National Mass Transit Authority was established with its headquarters in Islamabad.
The whole idea was to deny any mass transit system to Karachi.The World Bank also realized the then city government's intentions and subsequently withdrew its support to the KMTA.
It is worth mentioning that in the early 1990s, a similar scheme was being developed for Bangkok and when I had been there last year, I had the opportunity to take a ride on their mass transit trains.It is one of the most modern systems in Asia and, to a great extent, has solved the traffic congestion in the city.

Fahim Zaman was appointed as administrator KMC two months ago after the October 12 army action against the Nawaz regime. He had also served as administrator during the PPP government when Benazir Bhutto was prime minister.

Officials said Fahim spent a busy day on Friday and monitored the arrangements for the function of well-known musical group Janoon who will perform on Saturday for a charity show in which Sindh Governor Azim Daudpota will be the chief guest.
...
Sources said the authorities were quite satisfied with the performance of the KMC administrator but the criticism in media against Fahim forced the regime to remove him. However, insiders said Fahim repeatedly complained to higher authorities about the non-cooperation of civil bureaucracy, especially during the cleanliness drive in the city.
