ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday announced that a “comprehensive package” is being drafted to end the decades-long plight of Karachi residents, a day after a monsoon downpour claimed 12 lives and inflicted mayhem in the metropolis.
The premier, in a tweet, also said that he has directed all MNAs/MPAs of Karachi to remain in their constituencies to assist the residents.
“I have directed all MNAs/MPAs of Karachi to be in their constituencies throughout Eid & Independence Day holidays & provide all assistance to the ppl. The Federal Govt is drafting a comprehensive package to end the decades of neglect & suffering of the ppl of this gt metropolis,” he wrote.
PM Khan’s message comes after as many as 12 people died due to electrocution and various other rain-related incidents in Karachi over the weekend. Numerous sacrificial animals were also reportedly electrocuted to death as they were tied to electrical poles.
