PTI MPA Shehzad Qureshi in a video message criticized the Cantonment Board Clifton (CBC) and the Defence Housing Authority (DHA) for neglecting and ignoring the problem at hand.

“Sewerage has entered people’s water tanks, there is sewerage on the roads. For three to four days we have been trying to contact CBC, DHA […] we tried our best to get them to speed up rescue work. But even after three to four days, they have not been able to carry this out. Look at any commercial area, it looks like a river.”

Furthermore, he said that the DHA citizens lost millions. He further added that the PM and the President need to do an audit of CBC and DHA.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said, “We are helping the CBC in draining the rainwater.”
