KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) Vice President and leader of the parliamentary party in Sindh assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh has said that the citizens of Karachi have been suffering immense troubles during an ongoing spell of rain due to the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
Addressing a press conference at Hunaid Lakhani Secretariat, he said that the monsoon rain is considered a blessing but the corrupt PPP rulers of Sindh have made them the source of tormenting Karachiites. He said that in a rain of one hour, more than six people lost their lives.
He said that the World Bank had given money to clean gutters of Karachi but no one knows where these funds went. He added that the gutters are overflowing in almost every locality of the megacity.
He said our MPs are protesting against the K-Electric (KE). He said in 2009 the Zardari government had an inked a deal of giving KESC to Abraaj Group till 2023 and the Karachiites are paying the price of this shoddy and murky deal. He further said that the KE is extorting money from the citizens of Karachi under different pretexts.
