KARACHI – Sindh Assembly member and Pakistani leader Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Haleem Adil Sheikh said here on Thursday that the reason why the city was submerged after the recent rains was the absence of maintenance of sewerage channels in recent years. “Rain and floods that result in traffic jams, causing great inconvenience for passengers,” he added. He regretted that the Sindh government did nothing to address the problems of the people of Karachi, the provincial capital, and the economic center of the country.
“Billions of rupees have been given to the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) but unfortunately, the results are not visible,” he said. Welcoming the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) team in the city, Sheikh hopes the Authority will solve the problems facing the city after it rains. “NDMA always comes to save people in all kinds of disasters; whether it was raining, an earthquake, or a pandemic, “the PTI leader concluded.
