Time to learn from post-rain situation and plan for next year: Fawad Ch 

Federal Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry Monday said we should learn from the situation that happened after the rains and should plan for the next year so that such adverse situation can be avoided.

He said the problem is if today the rain stopped then in a few days the situation returns to normal and we will forget everything and start living normally.

“Next year it will rain again, the routine of life will again come to a standstill, and then there will be noise once again,” Fawad Chaudhry said. 

The minister is urging to learn from the situation at the time when several areas of Karachi remained submerged and without power on Monday, five days after record-breaking rains wreaked havoc on the port city.

On the other hand, K-Electric said, “As drainage efforts gain speed with the help of local authorities, two feeders with prolonged outage issues in the DHA area have been powered up, namely Phase IV (Nishar Shaheed) and Muslim Commercial.”

In a tweet, K-Electric said: “Apart from these, Clifton Block-7 and two feeders out of three in Bath Island have also been energized. Earlier, help from local authorities in drainage efforts in Shujaat and Nishat allowed restoration work to proceed faster and KE teams were able to power up several feeders including DHA Phase-II Ext., DHA Phase-VII, Gizri lane, Badar Comm. Phase-V Ext., Phase-II, Main Commercial Avenue, Khayabane Badar, Block-2 Clifton and Main Clifton Road.”
