Tussle between parties on fixing manholes’ lids intensified in Karachi

KARACHI: A hot debate on fixing manholes lids broke out in Karachi on Monday, leaving behind all the other main issues faced by Karachiites.

All the political parties have started discussing and shuffling allegations on one another regarding fix it campaign. Leader of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and named mayor of Karachi Waseem Akhtar accused Sindh government of doing dirty politics.

He said that the administration has failed to provide relief to Karachiites.

Speaker Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani responding to Akhtar’s statement stated said that fixing the lids of gutters is responsibility of civic departments, not chief minister (CM).

Meanwhile, Nusrat Sahar Abbasi urged the district management to give all the powers to local bodies’ representatives.

MQM Khawaja Izhar Hassan also could not stop himself from commenting and said that he will accompany CM Sindh Qaim Ali Shah wherever he will visit to monitor cleanliness in the metropolis.

On the other hand, the irked Karachi natives only demanded early solution to the problem and said that the leaders should refrain from wasting time by arguing with each other.

Earlier, Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Sunday was out surveying the roads on a holiday. He ordered getting all the manholes covered within and cleaning of the city within one week. It seems that Fix-It campaign has finally worked.

Sindh CM complained once again that his picture is put up on every manhole that remains uncovered.

After an artist who took it upon himself to get required steps taken for betterment of the people painted pictures of Chief Minister (CM) Qaim Ali Shah around potholes on roads, the administration apparently came in action. NNI
