Karachi Metropolitan Corporation Administrator review drain cleaning works

Karachi, July 15, 2016 (PPI-OT):KMC Administrator Laeeq Ahmed said drains in Karachi were natural source of storm water drainage therefore these must be free of all sorts of encroachments. Action will be taken if encroachers did not remove these voluntarily. Reviewing the strategy for cleaning of drains and ongoing works he said the cleaning and de-silting of drains will be performed on permanent basis. He also directed municipal services officers to focus the chocking points in storm water drains and remove them as soon as possible so that adjoining localities could be made safe.

Administrator Karachi said the cleaning of drains should be done manually where it was not possible to enter heavy machinery for this work. He said the width of some of the drains has now shrunk to a few feet only due to the existence of encroachments on these drains. He said he was personally monitoring all these works and paying visits of drains to check the pace of work and ensure swift working.
