Blaming too much rain in the minimum time period for the collapse of Karachi’s road infrastructure as well damage to people’s properties, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday asked critics of the Sindh government to tell what they had done for the port city, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a press conference in Karachi, he said, “Who says we were not prepared for the rains.” 

He went on to say that parts of the Sindh capital received record 127 millimetres of rain in just three hours. “District South of the city received 343 millimetres of rain between July 5 and July 12,” the CM informed.

Truth of the matter was that, he added, that opponents of the PPP as well as of the provincial government were only fond of point scoring. “What PTI did for the city during its four-year stay in the corridors of power. Our detractors should rather appreciate us for taking best decisions in difficult circumstances,” he claimed. 

Murad reminded that last time Karachi was lashed by record-breaking rains was in 2020. “We should bear this thing in mind that this is because of the phenomenon of ‘climate change’ that the Sindh capital as well as other parts of the province are receiving excessive rains,” he emphasized. 

He also rubbished reports that all concerned staff was absent because of Eid holidays.      

The chief minister invited all to point out shortcomings in the Sindh government’s governance so that improvements could be made and such natural disasters could be better tackled in future.
