Earlier in the day, Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhtar talking exclusively to ARY News said that till the drainage systems were completely disposed, the danger of urban floods would linger on in Karachi.
Akhtar said that the city needs a proper waste disposal system which is missing hence people throw most of the waste in storm drains.
He added that there was no point in employing engineers and machinery worth millions to clean the drains as they get filled up with garbage again due to the city’s severe lack of proper waste disposal.
