Murtaza Wahab: The entire administration in Karachi is set to deal with rain issue

Murtaza Wahab, the administrator of Karachi, reassured the public that his entire administration is on the ground to handle any unfortunate circumstance as the monsoon season in the city begins and significant rainfall is anticipated.

“Entire government is on the ground to deal with any situation,” Wahab posted on Twitter.

Wahab stated that it would be difficult for the administration and residents to handle the situation, given that heavy rainfall wrecks havoc on the roadways of Karachi, causing severe traffic jams every year. Therefore, he asked that they refrain from making “unnecessary moves” while it rains.

As soon as it rains, everyone leaves their offices at once, creating traffic congestion. Wahab advised people to avoid unnecessary movement or plan their activities to prevent gridlock.

As predicted by the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), rain fell in several areas of the city on Monday, relieving the populace of the oppressive humidity and heat wave.

The moderate to severe rains that chief meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz earlier today predicted for Karachi has now materialized.

Shahrah-e-Faisal, Sohrab Goth, and surrounding districts saw drizzle while Gadap Town in the city was pummelling by torrential rain.

On the Geo News show “Geo Pakistan,” Sarfaraz stated that “a good amount of rain with thunderstorm is likely in the metropolis after 2 pm today and the spell may persist till late at night.”

In addition to Karachi, rain fell in Dadu, Thatta, and Mirpurkhas.
