Efforts to improve infrastructure, such as constructing roads and developing parks and playgrounds, were also discussed. Shah committed to finalizing schemes for road construction and instructed local bodies to prioritize the development of recreational spaces.

Overall, the interactive session highlighted the government’s commitment to addressing the needs of communities across Sindh, with a focus on enhancing local governance, improving infrastructure, and promoting social welfare.
