he said that suddenly I used the word rain because there was no preparation but I am thankful to all the institutions of the city administration. He said that due to rains on Shahra-e-Faisal, there was always a problem to overcome.
The Sindh government had laid a new drainage line in the entire area of Shahra-e-Faisal due to which no water was collected here and no rain water was collected from the nursery to Natha Khan Bridge.
He said that the situation was also better at Quaid-e-Azam’s residence Wazir Mansion, II Chandragar Road, MA Jinnah Road because a new drainage line was laid towards the Minister Mansion and
Shahra-e-Pakistan, Nazimabad, Maripur Road were also clear. A small amount of water had accumulated at KDA Chowrangi but water was drained from KDA Chowrangi in two hours.
He further said that KDA and NaganChowrangi used to suffer from rain problems but now three new outlets had been set up at KDA Chowrangi and its water is diverted towards Gujjar Nalla. I thanks to the management of SIDCL for this.
He said that water had accumulated in one place because there was no drainage system. Surjani Town needed some help as it also received water from District West and Central.
