Rains ravages drainage system in Karachi
KARACHI: Every year city’s monsoon season potentially clogs drainage system and leaves around 500 gutters across the city lying blocked with piles of garbage.
Monsoon’s first spell this year started on Monday and is expected to end today, which has flooded the streets of Karachi with accumulated water.
Despite Rs1 billion were allocated in the budget to keep the city’s drains clean, yet the authorities woke up to start clearing them only two days before the rain forecast. Now at this point, they are worried that it was not possible to clean them in such limited time.
