KARACHI: Heavy rainfall in Karachi has hindered the flow of traffic in many areas of the city like MA Jinnah Road, Jamshed Road, Patel Para, Lyari, Baldia Town, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Nipa Chowrangi, Shahrah-e-Faisal, North Karachi and North Nazimabad.

Prolonged power outages also remained a big problem in many areas.

The rainfall also affected the railways schedule, as almost all trains were three to four hours behind schedule while the met office has predicted more rains for the city in the next two days.

    Good luck to Karachiites.

    In every rainy season I go and sit on K-2 Mountain so that I should keep myself away from the water coming out of drains.

    My Al-Mighty Allah helps us. Karachiites are surrounded by KESC, Water and Sewerage Board and other utilities companies.

    Every body is there to earn money, except the poor Karachiites who pay utility bills to respective agencies on gun point.Recommend
