Minister for Planning & Development Asad Umar has said the system of local government should be fully empowered & government is going to announce an empowered local government system in Islamabad & Punjab.
Addressing the All Stake-Holders Conference Sindh hosted by Pakistan Tehreek Insaf in Karachi on Sunday, he said PTI leadership is ready to sit with the Sindh government to resolve the problems of the province.

Minister for Planning said that the problems of the cities will not be solved until the local governments are empowered.
Federal Minister said the voice of the people living in Karachi should also be heard. We will raise our voice at every forum for the solution to Karachi’s problems.
