KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information and Archives and Labour Saeed Ghani has directed officials to immediately dewater stagnant rainwater in the Karachi Administration Employees Co-operative Housing Society. He also directed them to clear chocked drainage lines across the city immediately. During his visit to different areas, Ghani said that the recent rains caused complete breakdown of urban life. Owing to precautionary measures and immediate steps taken by Sindh government on the directives of Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah the situation instantly returned to normalcy, he said.
The minister said that he had ordered the prompt cleansing of the choked storm water drains and repairing of the broken drainage pipes across the city.
He said that the directives had already been issued for the prompt removal of the waste material of sacrificial animals. "A huge quantity of offal had already been disposed of from all parts of the metropolis and soon the relevant bodies would clean the city completely," he added.
