Karachi, September 06, 2017 (PPI-OT):On the directives of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah cleaning of roads and streets and clearing of the remnants of the recent rainfall was continued rigorously on the second day of the campaign as well, under the direct supervision of the Assistant Commissioners of District Central.
The entire district has been completely cleared of offal. Whereas, relief work in rain affected areas is also 90 percent complete. District Central Deputy Commissioner, Fariddudin Mustafa fitter said that a large area of the district has been covered including North Nazimabad, Hyderi, Sir Sulaiman Road, FBATI NKATI, all underpasses, main roads as well as internal arteries.
He further added that since Kashmiri Colony was among the hardest hit areas, a large proportion of the labour force and machinery is being focused on this area. 10 dumpers, 10 tractor trolleys, 12 tractors with blades, 2 excavators, 1 bob kit and about 100 manual labour is currently employed in Kashmiri Colony.
According to the DC Central, the rain water in this area has been mostly cleared. What remains is the slush that is prevalent here due to the fact that it lies on the bed of Orangi Nullah and a lacks a proper sewerage system. He reiterated the need for a detailed operation of the Nullah in the future along the lines of the Gujjar Nullah Operation. A resident of Kashmiri Colony, Gul Hassan appreciated the effort of the District Administration in the relief activities for the Colony and thanked Honourable Chief Minister for intervening.
