Bad road man­age­ment

HA­ROON RASHID

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

It is clear while us­ing the Malir Road, that the au­thor­i­ties do not care about the peo­ple’s prob­lems, even dur­ing the month of Ra­mazan. The road is in a con­tin­u­ous mess and no one cares that traf­fic is mis­man­aged and peo­ple do not reach their homes in time to rest and do Iba­dat. This is be­cause the gov­ern­ment is not tak­ing much in­ter­est in the project and the pub­lic has been left to the mercy of the con­trac­tor and the corrupt po­lice. This is the rea­son that crim­i­nal gangs are ac­tive in the area; they loot the road-users, do mug­gings, snatch mo­bile phones and jew­ellery and com­mit hold-ups.

The road is full of bumps and pot­holes and is all the time flooded with dirty sew­er­age wa­ter. This is caus­ing hy­giene prob­lems and the peo­ple liv­ing in the area are suf­fer­ing from all kinds of health is­sues. Traf­fic move­ment on this por­tion of the road is very slow and is lead­ing to con­sid­er­able loss of time. This is hard to live with es­pe­cially in this holy month. —Via email
