Due to heavy rain, the province affected the most in entire country is Sindh and its capital city Karachi in particular. But the fake leaders, mealy-mouthed stakeholders and double-dealing owners are claiming having served the Karachi. It’s matter of fact that all those who claim to be the custodians have nothing to do with the problems of Karachi. They seem to be concerned only about their own benefits.

The miserable situation in Karachi has made me to believe that unfortunately the metropolis has always had fair weather friends. The monsoon rains fall in every nook and corner of the country carrying numerous problems on their back, leaving the innocent citizens at the mercy of self-centered stakeholders. But due to heavy rain, the province affected the most in entire country is Sindh and its capital city Karachi in particular. The fake leaders, mealy-mouthed stakeholders and double-dealing owners are claiming having served the Karachi. It’s matter of fact that all those who claim to be the custodians have nothing to do with the problems of Karachi. They seem to be concerned only about their own benefits. The present rainfall in the metropolitan city has devastated the infrastructure. The roads are torn, houses submerged and streets have turned rivers. The city streets gave the look of Venice city. People hardly got rid of pandemic as this new problem sprang up compelling people to stay home again since they had no boats to go out for their needs. Moreover, power breakdown was inevitable in such disastrous monsoon. Recently, government has announced river flood alerts in rural areas. The condition of Sindh is the most terrifying in these following days. May Allah almighty have pity on us. We remember the destruction caused by flood in 2010. Thousands of people were displaced and rehabilitation took almost years.

O’ Creator! be merciful on us particularly the dwellers of soil of Sindh.
