With all the development work going on in Karachi, it is very disheartening to see that the residents of Landhi are neglected, especially those living on Street# 24 of Area 36-B. The residents of this street are facing acute shortage of clean drinking water. A numbers of complaints were lodged at the office of Union Council-9, Landhi Town. The residents have also paid Rs 2000 per home for the installation of a new water line in the area but no action has been taken yet. We are still waiting for water to run in our faucets. -M.
