Karachi: Pakistan’s Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed said Thursday that he was angry with the administration of the case involving Karachi drainage violations.
The hearing was held at the Karachi Registry of the Supreme Court. Judge Gulzar Ahmed said: “If the Sindh provincial government cleans up the open channels, why would the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA) also come? Urdu Bazar’s drainage system was violated What should I do?”
Karachi Commissioner Ali Shalwani told the Supreme Court that Urdu Bazar’s violations had been cleared.
The Advocate General of Sindh Province showed pictures of clean drains to the Supreme Court. Judge Gulzar Ahmed said: “What do you want to prove by showing these pictures? You claim that the whole city is clean after showing the pictures of the two drains. If the open channels are clean, why would they be flooded? These areas?”
While the advocate expressed that he did not understand why NDMA carried out cleaning operations in Karachi, he did not know why it took August 30 to clean all open channels. The court also ordered the cleaning of Bath Island drains.
