KARACHI, August 6: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has expressed grief over the sad deaths in rain-related incidents including through electrocutions by fallen electricity wires in Sindh and asked Sindh cabinet and the elected representatives to stay alert in their respective areas during monsoon.
In a press statement, PPP Chairman asked the relevant authorities to ensure that rain water is drained away within shortest possible time.
He stressed that Federal government should also make certain that its transmission electricity lines are maintained properly and secure the same from playing havoc during rains.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that unannounced load-shedding of long durations during rainy season were making the life of people miserable. He said K-Electric’s inefficiency plunged almost entire Karachi into darkness while Hyderabad and Sukkur electricity supplies inflicted worst conditions in their areas.
PPP Chairman said that losses in rain-related incidents could be averted or minimized through proper planning and precautionary measures.
However, he greeted to the people in Thar Desert and Kohistan and hoped that drought will fed away in these rain-thirsty mountainous and sand regions.
