Rain in Karachi takes a toll of 15 lives! Ineffective civil govt. asks for military support!

MMA

KARACHI: At-least 15 people were electrocuted due to snapped wires as rains lashed the Metropolis in last 48 hours. 

Since fund guzzling civil authorities did not work for years, the gutters and nullahs got choked inundating the roads.

Civil government has shamelessly asked of the military support to contain the situation.

Consequently, Interior Minister, has asked the DG Rangers of Sindh to utilize all the available resources to rescue people.

It is pertinent to mention here that the corrupt government do not clean the rain water drainage (naddi/nullah) and allows illegal construction on rain water drainage. As a result few drops of rain turns roads into pools.

Similarly the electric cables and polls are not maintained due to which deaths due to snapped wires are very common.

Then dilapidated buildings often collapse taking its toll. During current spell an eight-year-old died when such a building, that was being used by FIA, collapsed.

Falling of billboards kill citizens regularly.  Unlawfully erected monsters often fall upon people. Just recently one such billboards at Cattle Bazaar fell upon a boy crushing him to death instantaneously.

Meanwhile, towns like Saadi Town were built in incredibly low-lying areas. Hence during rains such places turn into huge gutter. Presently too water from breached Thado Dam is about heading towards these settlements. 

Water from Thado Dam breach is about to  submerge the nearby Saadi Town.
