  Mayor pay surprise visit to Food & Quality Control Department.  
  Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar said no one could be allowed to play with the health of citizens by means of food adulteration or selling fake items. This would mean poisoning people and the people of Karachi were being feed with this poison. All those who indulge in selling fake or below standard food items are warned that we will not allow them to do so now. Those who did wrong things or indulged in producing adulterated food items will also be booked for this crime. He said this during an unscheduled inspection of the KMC Food & Quality Control and Laboratory Department in the presence of media representatives on Friday morning. Mayor Karachi during this surprise visit checked the machinery, equipments and drugs used in the laboratory and also enquired about their usage from the doctors, biologists and chemists and other staff. He called it very unfortunate that 90 percent testing machines were out of order, cylinders and first aid boxes found empty and other equipments were in depreciated condition. He said no any minister or officer from government inspected this place in last eight years but we will now bring capable staff here so they could run this department in excellent manner. Sr. Director Dr. Asghar Abbas on this occasion briefed the Mayor about the working of the department. Mayor Karachi said to food inspectors that action will be taken against them if they did not change their attitude. Now they must have to play their role in eradicating food adulteration and selling of fake items in the city.
