Federal Minister for Railways, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed Wednesday criticized that Karachi city was suffering the miseries of accumulated waters and choked sewerage lines after the spell of torrential rains caused urban flooding in many areas adjacent to nullahs which have exposed the Sindh government’s incompetency, who had failed to deliver.
In a recent statement Federal Minister for Railways, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said that the heavy rainfall in Karachi has exposed the performance of Karachi’s civic authorities and the Sindh government as they miserably failed to provide relief to the citizens.
Sheikh Rasheed said Mafias are operating in the city and that there is no rule of law in the province, adding, the entire government machinery is involved in Karachi’s deteriorating situation.
The Minister said that the Sindh government has taken funds from the center however the situation on the ground remains miserable.
“If you look at hospitals, roads, sewerage system, law and order situation and schools in Sindh, the condition is terrible,” he added.
He said that the people of Quaid’s city are being tested after heavy rains and the sympathies of the entire nation are with them.
The federal minister further said that all possible assistance is being provided to the provincial government without any political bias.
He further mentioned that I have done the work in my constituency to clean nullahs early before monsoon spells and there is no sign of urban flooding in my area while PPP in Sindh has shown the worst governance and ill planning in these 12 years.
