آج بہتوں کو کراچی کا غم ہے،کچھ اتنےدکھی ہیں جیسے چھیپا کے جھولے نیں کوئی کراچی پھینک گیا،جب کےالیکٹرک کے خلاف میں چیخاتوہمارے اندر گالی بریگیڈ نے جس کاشہریہاں مسائل سے تعلق نہیں گالیاں دیتے رہے ہمیشہ اپنی جماعت کو یاددلایاکراچی والے محسن ہیں ،کپتان سے امید ہے وہی کچھ کرے گا

It’s a torrential downpour, not a normal one in Karachi … entire khi has drowned irrespective of any area … this is going to haunt people for lives … please have some heart and sympathies with the people and avoid posting “enjoying rain” posts … please 🙏

1. ہمارے پاس شہر کا mandate ضرور ہے مگر اٹھارویں ترمیم کے بعد شہر کے انتظامات صوبائی حکومت کی ذمہ داری ہے۔
2. این ایف سی ایوارڈ میں صوبے کا جو حصہ مقرر ہے ہمیں وہ نہیں دیا جارہا اس لئے شہر میں کام کرنے سے قاصر ہیں۔
3. میرے پاس شہر کے گٹر کا ڈھکن بدلنے کا بھی اختیار نہیں۔

Since June, we'd been complaining to DHA authorities about choked sewer lines & an inadequate drainage system in our street at Sehar (Phase 7).
Today, my ground portion is flooded. Can't even begin to assess damage.
Rains will continue – as per Met Office – till 11 pm.

1/2 No doubt the government didn’t care about the city but did we ! time to stop complaining & do something on our own & fix atleast our own colony issues in Karachi ! We can’t even stop throwing the garbage everywhere we like. Gov doesn’t have a magic wand! #KarachiRains

2/2 It’s the people who have to work hand in hand with the gov ! How many of you can come up with a solution. Why don’t we start somewhere . Sab kuch government ka kaam nahi hota. Khud bhi kuch sochein, haath pey haath rakh k baithnay k ilawa ! #KarachiRains

With the videos I’m seeing, the stories I’m hearing, its a National Emergency situation. People are homeless, stuck on the streets, or being swept away. Are there relief packages being prepared? Is help coming? When? @MuradAliShahPPP #SindhGovt #KarachiSinks #KarachiRain

Instead of complaining, let’s all spread some positivity. Big salute to all the karachites who have been helping people stuck on the roads, helping people reach safely to their loved ones. People who aren’t doing it bc it’s their job but because they care.

If monsoons happen EVERY single year at the SAME time, what possible excuse can the government have for never being prepared?

Karachi has been in a state of denial….it baffles everyone that the country’s largest city has only regressed over time. I say this with no political bias just as a citizen. It is almost like people of Karachi have been abandoned. #Karachi https://t.co/yEVPp6GM7W

Electrocution, drowning, irreversible damage to property, poisoning, cross contamination, hepatitis, dysentery, typhoid, risk of polio outbreak, not to mention the diseases associated with mosquito infestation like dengue and malaria! How is Karachi not in a state of emergency?? https://t.co/KVBtSM77Rp
