As the monsoon season is just around the corner, City Administra­tor Barrister Murtaza Wahab on Saturday said that the cleaning and de-silting of 41 major storm drains in Karachi had been almost completed.

While visiting Jubilee Nullah, Garden Nullah, Soldier Bazaar Nullah and Regal Saddar Nullah, he said that work on major drains was in full swing.

“The District Municipal Corporations (DMCs) should clean the drains passing through their area, trying not to cause any inconvenience to the citizens in the rainy season,” he ordered.

Metropolitan Commissio­ner Afzal Zaidi, project director of the Sindh Solid Waste Management Board Zubair Channa, Deputy Commissioner-South Abdul Sattar and other officers were also present on the occasion.

“All action for stormwater drainage should be taken under a joint strategy, all districts must make water drainage possible in their respective areas,” he added.
