(National): Residents protest for opening closed sewerage drain

LARKANA: The residents of Chawra Street held a protest demonstration and burnt tyres on main road near Zulfiqar Bagh here on Friday against failure of
(LMC) authorities to drain out stagnant rainwater and sewage from their areas which has crippled life. They also staged sit-in and shouted slogans in favour of their demands.

Munir Buledi, Mir Muhammad Chawro, Mukhtiar Buldei, Javed Shaikh, Sajjad, Asghar Bhutto and others complained before media persons that influential ex-councillor Shabir Bhutto got closed main sewerage drain which was used for draining out sewerage due to which all sewerage lines are now overflowing and streets have been inundated which has created lot of problems for the residents as contaminated water has entered into their houses as well.

They said since the last 15 days no cleanliness efforts have been taken by the relevant authorities despite our repeated requests to LMC. They urged the concerned government authorities to take notice of the highhandedness and order reopening of the closed drain so that standing sewerage water could be drained out.
