Bundal Island will surpass Dubai with $50 billion investment: Sindh Governor

Bundal Island project will “surpass Dubai” after it will be developed into a city with an investment of around $50 billion, Sindh Governor Imran Ismail has said. “Bundal island is part of Sindh and federal government is not going to take over it,” the governor said while dispelling the perception that PTI-led government is trying to “occupy it”.

He was addressing a news conference in Islamabad after meeting Prime Minister Imran Khan to discuss the matters related to the development of islands off the Karachi’s coast. The premier has directed the Sindh governor to sort out all issues related to Bundal Island with the provincial government.

Bundle Island, he said, will increase revenue of the Sindh government and create job opportunities, saying it be turned into a tourist destination.

The federal government’s recent announcement of developing new cities on Bundal and Buddo Islands, also known as Bhandar and Dingi Islands in the local lingo, has left thousands in the fishing communities worried.
