The PPP chairman asked the relevant authorities to ensure that rain water was drained away within shortest possible time. It should be noted that at least five people lost their lives in rain related incidents across Karachi.
“Federal government should also make certain that its transmission electricity lines are maintained properly and secure the same from playing havoc during rains,” he said.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that unannounced load-shedding of long durations during rainy season were making the life of people miserable. He said K-Electric’s inefficiency plunged almost entire Karachi into darkness while Hyderabad and Sukkur electricity supplies inflicted worst conditions in their areas.
He said that losses in rain-related incidents could be averted or minimized through proper planning and precautionary measures.
However, he greeted to the people in Thar Desert and Kohistan and hoped that drought will fed away in these rain-thirsty mountainous and sand regions.
