Karachi:Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has directed Sindh ministers to stay out on the streets till the last drop of rain water is drained of every city, town and village of the province.

 

Speaking to Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Minister Local Government Nasir Hussain Shah and Minister Public Health Engineering Mir Shabir Ali Bijarani over telephone, the PPP chairman appreciated Sindh cabinet members for working on the ground through better coordination.

 

Local Government Minister Nasir Shah apprised the party chairman about the areas so far cleared from the rain water in Karachi, Hyderabad, Larkana, Sukkur, Mirpurkhas adding that drainage operations were in full swing everywhere in the province.

However, all the resources available with the Public Health Engineering Department have been geared up to drain away the rain water besides protecting the irrigation canals from developing breaches.

 

Bilawal asked the chief minister and his cabinet ministers to conduct the damage assessment so that timely rehabilitation could be carried out. He also expressed deep grief and sorrow over the losses of human lives in Sindh and all over the country and asked the federal and provincial governments to announce adequate compensations to the victims who lost their near and dear ones, and for those who lost their livelihoods during the worst monsoon rains witnessed in decades.
