Though the District Administration Shikarpur has renovated many times, still Shahi Bagh needs attention because sub-standard work has been done during its renovation or construction.
Zahid Bhanbhro, a representative of Save Shikarpur, expressed his great reservations regarding substandard work and demanded that Shahi Bagh is an asset of Shikarpur therefore Municipal authorities should concentrate on its beautification and proper work of renovation because Shahi Bagh is our pride and we would not compromise to destroy recreational places of Shikarpur.
