Daily Messenger - - Sportlight -

LARKANA: PPP Chair­man Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari has taken a no­tice of in­un­dated streets of Kausar Mill and other lo­cal­i­ties of Larkana on Sun­day.

These streets are filled with sew­er­age wa­ter which has badly af­fected lives of thou­sands of the res­i­dents. In this con­nec­tion, about a week ago Ayaz Ali Channo, a res­i­dent of the same lo­cal­ity, had com­plained to the chair­man by singing a sor­row­ful song in Urdu and mak­ing its video show­ing the streets sub­merged into over­flow­ing sew­er­age wa­ter due to which the lives of the cit­i­zens have been crip­pled.

The sew­er­age wa­ter was also stand­ing in front of Jamia Masjid of the lo­cal­ity due to which peo­ple were un­able to of­fer prayers there. The video be­came vi­ral on Sat­ur­day on so­cial me­dia as this cor­re­spon­dent up­loaded it in so­cial me­dia in­clud­ing twit­ter tag­ging it to the Chair­man, CM Sindh Syed Mu­rad Ali and Sindh's Lo­cal Bod­ies Min­is­ter Saeed Ghani. On Sat­ur­day, Suren­dar Vala­sai, Me­dia Man­ager of the Chair­man, sent a mes­sage on What­sApp to this scribe in­form­ing that Chair­man Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari has taken se­ri­ous no­tice of the men­ace of over­flow­ing gut­ters and has di­rected the Deputy Com­mis­sioner and Dis­trict au­thor­i­ties of Larkana to drain out­stand­ing sewage wa­ter within 24 hours and re­solve the is­sue per­ma­nently.

He said that clean­li­ness in en­tire Larkana dis­trict must be en­sured and no neg­li­gence in this con­nec­tion would be tol­er­ated. Bi­lawal fur­ther di­rected that dis­trict au­thor­i­ties must en­sure dis­charge of their le­gal, moral and of­fi­cial re­spon­si­bil­i­ties so that res­i­dents do not suf­fer. He said that clean­li­ness must be main­tained in en­tire Sindh for which no com­pro­mise would be made.

In this con­nec­tion, Channo said that the res­i­dents of the lo­cal­ity were suf­fer­ing from this men­ace since long. He said: “Dur­ing morn­ing time, sewage wa­ter starts ac­cu­mu­lat­ing that con­tin­ues till af­ter­noon and it re­cedes which shows that drainage lines are choked and Larkana Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion au­thor­i­ties have done noth­ing to re­move the faults since years.”

He said they had held sev­eral protests in the past but of no avail at all. Poet Ab­dul­lah Bhatti, who wrote the lines which were sung by Ayaz Channo, said that he con­tested against deputy mayor An­war Luhar in lo­cal bod­ies elec­tions due to which they had tar­geted that area. He also re­peated the same is­sues and said that the peo­ple wanted to have per­ma­nent so­lu­tions to the prob­lems faced by them.
