KARACHI: (Web Desk) Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah on Friday said that his government may have failed in “properly” informing the Supreme Court about the actions taken by the provincial government in Karachi.
“In 2009, 125mm rain was recorded [in Karachi] and Shahrah-e-Faisal was inundated for three days. This year, water did not remain [on the road] for even four hours,” said CM Murad while talking to media at the Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi.
Speaking about the cleaning of Karachi’s nullahs, the chief minister said that his government was conducting a survey of 38 nullahs of the city and cleaning them as well.
“The problems will solve once the nullas are cleaned,” he said.
The statement by the CM Murad comes a day after the apex court turned down his government’s plea to allow it to clean Karachi’s nullahs instead of the National Disaster Management Authority.
