Liaquatabad residents in Karachi cannot leave their homes for days because the roads in the area have been flooded with wastewater and wastewater.

“There’s no way someone can leave the house without getting dirty water,” said one resident. “What will we do if there is an emergency and someone has to go to the hospital?” he demanded.

The stench and germs that spread from dirty water have made it difficult for people to stay at home and endanger their lives.

“I have lived in this area for more than 50 years but nothing has ever been this bad,” said another resident.

He said that residents had made many complaints to the authorities and even sent a joint complaint letter but nothing was done.

Other parts of the Central District also face similar problems.

“It’s been over a month, a number of bicycle accidents have occurred here due to sewers but the government doesn’t care,” a resident of the Buffer Zone complained.

People who live in these neighborhoods are forced to use money from their own pockets to improve roads. The situation in New Karachi, the Shah Faisal Colony and the Lyari District in the South is the same.
