Power and water crises

Sir: Karachi, being the biggest metropolitan of Pakistan has its own merits and demerits of living. Karachi is famous for its street foods and active citizens making it a vibrant and energetic city. But unfortunately, a host of problems surround the Karachiites at every step. Solving one problem give rise to another. Its population has increased rapidly and accordingly given rise to many social problems.

One of them is electricity shortfall and shortage of water. Lack of these essential resources is disturbing and its unavailability create obstruction in everyday life.

Another problem which tops the list is traffic. The people of Karachi don’t observe traffic rules due to which perils of major road accidents increases which may lead to life loss as well.

This beautiful city is now known for the unpleasant smell, open sewerages and heaps of garbage everywhere across its streets. This gives rise to land and water pollution along with many dangerous and lethal diseases.

Apart from this, the root cause for the above-mentioned problems is the education framework of Karachi. Its literacy rate is not compelling thus leaving us questioning why the authorities aren’t concerned about it?

Through your newspaper, I would request government to analyse these problems and find a better solution for them before time slips away from our hands.
