Reham Khan blames Sindh government for heatwave deaths

Published: July 4, 2015


KARACHI: Reham Khan, the wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, on Saturday held the provincial and federal governments responsible for not taking effective measures to curb the death toll in Karachi from the deadly heatwave, even as she walked through empty halls of the hospital looking for heat stroke patients.

An ambassador for street children, Reham told reporters upon arriving in Karachi to visit the victims of the heatwave, “I am a bit late, but I have arrived now.”

The television talk show host visited Jinnah Hospital in Karachi in the hopes of visiting heatwave victims. But to her dismay, she was informed by the hospital’s joint executive director Dr Seemi Jamali, that all patients had been discharged after getting treated.

Reham said that she wished to set up camps for victims at Jinnah, as well as Cantt Station to provide free water bottles and juices to those suffering from the heat.

The talk show host is scheduled to have Iftar with some of the city’s street children at party leader and business tycoon Faisal Vawda’s residence in Karachi.

    She came to Karachi , she visited Jinnah Hospital and she tried to score numbers ,but alas
    there were no heat wave affected patient in JH ( Majoriy died and buried the rest already went home after surviving ).

    After two weeks MrsKhan visited Karachi and was so ill informed .
    And look at the way she was trying to score in a press conference

    We reject Mrs Khan.How low can you stoop to get attention .!!!! Shame on the Khan clan..Recommend

    The visits speak the bird named “planning” from the zoo of PTI.
    Their local leaders were surely unconnected with the Khi masses and patients, therefore unaware about the fact that all patients were already released from hospital.

    I doubt that ‘now’ Karachi’ites are going to vote them, in case mqm bad some problem in future,…. performance of JI was even better than PTI.Recommend

    Heat wave was a curse and warning from the All Mighty God in the month of Ramzan.It is not fair to blame any one.Rahim Khan wife of Khan e Khanan is all out to blame Sind Government perhaps she is unaware of Quranic verses. Yes KE is partly responsible.Recommend

    It is understandable that she has to go where she is told to go and read from the script she has been given — but Ma’am, as a tv host, you should know that if there is no originality, the shine will wear off — so, please, give sincerity a chance.Recommend

    @Jamhoor: Give her a break, all these joker political bigwigs are doing the rounds one on top of each other in a massive display of ‘solidarity and sympathy’. But, you know what ? This is an exercise in futility and helps nobody except maybe these bigwigs feel they are earning some sort of merit with their Maker…Recommend
