Sindh Minister for Local Government Nasir Hussain Shah on Monday hits back former fast bowler Wasim Akram, who had expressed disappointment over the urban flooding situation in Karachi after heavy raining.

Responding to Wasim Akram, Shah invited him to visit Karachi and “inspect [the] streets of Karachi and see how water has been drained from all roads.”

Nasir Hussain lashed out at the former fast-bowler, saying that if he had tweeted on the Karachi rain situation on hearsay, then he had disappointed millions of people in Sindh.

“I invite my neighbor Wasim Akram 2 come wid me now n inspect streets of Khi n c how water has been drained 4m all roads.I’m sure tht if u r sincere then u’ll defntly go n if u’ve tweeted on hearsay then thr is no one more irspnsbl than u bcz u’ve disapntd millions of ppl in Sindh,” he tweeted.

As video clips of several locations around Karachi flooding and gutters overflowing started to go viral on social media, Wasim Akram took to Twitter to express disappointment with the government.

He tweeted, “Seeing the footage of Karachi underwater and my heart goes out to all affected. I can’t say I’m not surprised that this has happened yet again. A wake up call? No it’s a problem that needs to be addressed period! We need to fix our beautiful city.”

However, at least five people died on Sunday and more than 550 K-Electric (KE) feeders tripped as heavy rain lashed the city.

Malir, Shah Faisal Colony, Gulistan-e-Johar, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, F.B Area, Liaquatabad, PIB Colony, Gulshan-e-Maymar, Korangi, and Old City Area were all reported to have power shortage soon after the rain started.
