. The incidents of dog biting were also increasing. She said that citizens were also suffering from anxiety because of the conflict betwwn Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar.
The Chief Minister held the Mayor responsible for all the mess, while the Mayor from his first day was claiming shortage of funds and no authority.
Nusrat Wahid said that there was no body to take care of the city.
“It is pity to say that the funds provided for the cleanliness of the city have been swallowed with the assistance of and in connivance with contractors and mafias,” said the MNA.
