The problems of this city are as complex as the population. The Sindh government, along with the city’s elected local government leadership, had taken emergency measures before the monsoon arrived, but some delays in cleaning the drains were due to late receipt of funds from the World Bank.
We had entrusted the entire task of cleaning the drains to Mayor Karachi Wasim and Project Director Click Zubair Channa, which was largely successful.
The provincial minister admitted that some areas of the city were affected by urban flooding, but Nasir Shah said that the settlements that were flooded were actually the settlements on the west side of the city.
Water flows downhill from the hills of Manghopir and Qasba Colony. In this whole process where the Water Board, Solid Waste Management Board, DMCs, KMC and other agencies were involved in relief activities, the role of welfare agencies cannot be denied.
The Sindh government is using all its resources and manpower for the welfare of the people, but we appeal to our people to cooperate with us. If the opponents cannot help, at least do not create an atmosphere of fear. We Will together clean and maintain the Karachi.
