He also complained that the water supply problems existed in several areas of the city depriving the citizens of water during the ongoing hot weather.”Due to delay and untimely cleaning of the sewers, the drainage system often chokes and the sewage poodles flood the roads in several localities,” he bemoaned. According to him, many commercial areas suffer from the drainage problem which affected the business and drove away from the customers. Shaikh said August 14 celebration and Eid-ul-Azha festivity were in the offing but the city lacked the water supply and cleanliness.
The HCCI requested the Managing Director of WASA Masood Jumani to take urgent measures for improving the situation.
