Murtaza Wahab Resigned From Karachi Administrator Post

Announcement made on twitter as well from his official account:

Earlier today, the Sindh High Court ruled that the KMC could not collect municipal taxes through power bills.

“KMC should not collect taxes through K-Electric.” If citizens do not pay the levy, their electricity connections will be terminated,” the top court panel remarked.

The bench barred the KMC from collecting municipal taxes through power bills until the matter was heard again in 10 days.

During a news conference today in Karachi, the PPP leader expressed disappointment over the court’s decision to temporarily suspend the collection of municipal taxes through electricity utility bills.

“I worked diligently day in and day out,” he claimed, “yet there was no gratitude for the effort I performed for the city.”

The outgoing administrator stressed that the KMC tax “did not fill his pockets,” but instead went directly into the governing body’s coffers.

In August of last year, the Sindh government named Murtaza Wahab, Advisor to the Chief Minister on Law and Environment, as the new administrator of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation.
