Notice served to Mayor Karachi over fly infestation

Waseem Akhtar
KARACHI: The Sindh High Court has issued a notice to Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar for not attending the hearing of the fly infestation case on Wednesday.
Wasim Akhtar and other officials were issued notices over the fly infestation in the city.  The court has instructed the respondents should submit their replies by the next hearing. The court further said that both the parties should ensure they submit their answers at the next hearing.
The petition in the case was filed on 28th August which stated that Sindh government, mayor Karachi, and chairmen of all six districts have not been playing their role in cleaning the city.
The petition added that people have to brush off flies from everything and it has made everyone’s lives quite difficult.
It further added that diseases, such as dengue and Congo viruses, have become common because the administration doesn’t have a proper garbage and offal disposal system. The situation will become worse if nothing is done.
Flies in Karachi have become a bullying force on sidewalks, flying in and out of stores and cars and homes and settling onto every available surface, from vegetables to people after the metropolis’ recent spell of a torrential rainstorm.
Heavy rains inundated the city of nearly 20 million people for weeks, overwhelming drainage systems clogged with mountains of uncollected garbage and flooding neighborhoods with raw sewage.
