Un­hy­gienic sur­round­ings

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MAHNOOR KALEEM.

I would like to draw the at­ten­tions of rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to­wards highly de­plorable and poor con­di­tion of clean­li­ness and drain sys­tem of our town. The streets are not swept reg­u­larly. The clean­ers have been miss­ing for past two months. The piles of garbage can be seen ev­ery­where in our so­ci­ety. Pun­gent smell is aris­ing from piles of lit­ters and garbage, which has be­come un­bear­able for res­i­dents. The sewage wa­ter is over flow­ing from gut­ters, mak­ing road con­di­tions very dif­fi­cult for the pedes­tri­ans to cross the roads. This could gen­er­ate many fa­tal dis­eases dur­ing com­ing mon­soons rain.

Malaria has al­ready bro­ken out and we are wor­ried about the spread of dengue and cholera. I re­quest that mu­nic­i­pal au­thor­i­ties should take this mat­ter se­ri­ously. Some im­me­di­ate steps must be taken to so that peo­ple can live com­fort­ably. — Karachi
