While addressing to a press conference in Karachi, Chief marketing and communications officer K-electric Syed Fakhar Ahmed stated that vehicles used for checking the street lights and vehicles of K-electric look a lot alike.
Syed Fakhar Ahmed asked if the street lights were ever checked and pointed that manual switches are installed for street lights on the poles, which are used by people to turn the lights on and off.
He pointed out the drainage system in the city has no capacity to cater to the requirement of the population, therefore all the gutters were gushing out sewerage water on to the roads.
Illegal cable operators are working in the city. A cable bundle can clearly be seen in the video, in which the tragic incident took place in Defence area, said Chief marketing and communications officer K-electric Syed Fakhar Ahmed in his press conference.
These cables conduct electricity when the generators are on. Tragic incidents, which took place in the city after the rain spell are condemn-able, he added.
One must not veil from the weak infrastructure of the city, regardless of the fact that encroachments have been installed in the 30-40 percent of the area.
Illegal constructions have caused severe troubles in the city, which has a population of more than 20 crores. Will all organizations hide behind K-electric after these incessant rains, he asked.
Earlier, A first information report (FIR) was registered against K-Electric administration over electrocution of a man in the provincial capital.
The case was filed over the death of 30-year-old Saad Ahmed who died on July 29 in Paposh Nagar neighborhood of North Nazimabad due to electrocution.
