KARACHI:The Members of National Assembly (MNAs) of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) have expressed their deep concern over met office forecast of possible flood in Sindh after Punjab.
In a joint statement, the MQM MNAs demanded of Sindh government to utilize all the relevant departments to save precious human lives and properties. They urged to complete all the cleaning works of rain streams and rainwater drains prior to the calamity reached.
They said that the water level was increased at Hala, Sindh, and there was possibility that a stream of hundreds of thousands cusecs of water could enter Sindh region. They suggested Sindh government to refurbish all the embankments and canals to stop repeating the tragic history regarding flood devastation.
The parliamentarians said that the provincial government, ministers and administration should consider the met office forecast as a challenge. They appealed to the government to take appropriate measures to save people’s lives and their properties.
The MQM MNAs suggested the government not to confine themselves merely announcing rain-emergency in the province but to step forward to stop the possible devastation of the calamity. They warned that if there would be any human or property loss due to the flood and torrential rains, the government would directly be blamed.
