No arrangement has been made to evacuate it, the road looks like a pond on which a metro boat is needed but neither the administration is extracting water nor sending a metro boat for the citizens, clearing Ghazi Road.

The safety barrier of Barkat Town canal in Shahdara area was breached, due to which the water of the canal entered the houses and destroyed the valuables of the citizens. Arriving on the spot, Sharian says the water came out of the safety barrier due to the canal not being cleaned.

The urban population living along the Lahore Metro track is facing difficulties after the rains. The government will not make any arrangements for the drainage of the missing water in the homes of the people.
