The motive of the drive is to remove the backlog of the garbage from the streets of the city. 21.2 million population of Karachi’s citizens leave tonnes of trash on the streets every day.
As a consequence, heaps of trash have now become hard to avoid in Karachi. They are not only an eyesore, but they also serve as breeding grounds for flies and other vermin that endanger public health.
