Well some people might think and say what in the world I am talking about while SINDH Pakistan is worst hit by Super Floods and Hyderabad is hosting more than 90 thousand flood victims being displaced from all over Sindh and many many Relief Camps are set up in Hyderabad Sindh.
Which makes a valid point; Hyderabad has a very central, geographic location in Sindh and we all know about this.
After this Epic Disaster has hit Sindh so many International NGOS, Foreign Dignitaries, and UN officials have been visiting Hyderabad to visit and have ground assessments and establish relief work and they are disappointed to know that 2nd largest city and a great metropolis of Sindh “HYDERABAD” does not have a 5 Star Hotel to accommodate all these guests and their specific requirements and needs. Imagine the commute of these visitors back and forth to Karachi.
Which only makes it impossible to do any kind of work and establish relief operation center. What a LOSS & SHAME !!!
So far INDUS HOTEL the only hotel in our city of International standards is completely overbooked and extremely busy all the times. Then Hotel City Gate and Hotel Faran are left to cater the needs but not enough as they do not have those International Standards and are not capable to handle such kind of guests.
It is a great embarrassment for the citizens as well as for our beloved city to lack such an important facility in such a big Metropolis City of Hyderabad Sindh. It only adds misery to over all image of our city when we cannot accommodate visitors of high caliber in our city. Hyderabad is one of the fastest growing, and expanding city of South Asia.
We also have heard a million times same complaint from ICC (International Cricket Council), Sports Board and other major organizations due to lack of 5 Star Hotel in the city no major international sports event can be held here.
And Now This Epic Flood Disaster once again highlighted this great need of the city one more time.
I just don’t understand the BLOCKAGES OF RED-TAPE when it comes to any thing attached to Modernize Hyderabad Sindh. We all know that process of building a 5 star Hotel in Hyderabad Sindh got started.
Location was finalized (Next to Niaz Stadium), Land was approved, Bidding and Tender process was announced in Feb,2010.
And then a DEEP FREEZE, COMPLETE SILENCE !!! And i am sure this project file must be eating dust on some dark shelf !!
I also noticed in the news that one French Hotel Company was very much interested in building a 5 Star Hotel in Hyderabad Sindh.
I kindly urge the Private Sector to come forward and please Build, Own, and Operate a 5 Star Hotel in Hyderabad Sindh.
It is Urgently needed in our city. Building of such Hotel will help every one from Poor to Rich of our city.
It will not just enhance our International Image, But will provide new employment and development opportunities to my fellow citizens of Hyderabad Sindh.
Thanks for taking your time,
