Karachi: Hafiz Naeem ur Rahman, the leader of Jamaat-e-Islami Karachi, has stated that 50% of Karachi’s population is grappling with a lack of water supply.
During a press conference at Idara Noor-e-Haq, Hafiz Naeem ur Rahman expressed that the scarcity of water has severely affected 50% of the population. Initially, certain areas were experiencing water supply issues, but now it has become widespread, making the water problem a headache for the people of Karachi.
He raised a question about the existence of 200 illegal hydrants that are operational, providing water to those other than the residents of Karachi. He questioned the reasoning behind this unequal distribution.
Furthermore, Hafiz Na’eem-ul-Rahman mentioned that there is rampant corruption worth billions of rupees in the water supply system. The Pakistan Peoples Party directly interferes with the Water Board. The city is currently witnessing daily protests due to the lack of electricity and water supply.
