LAHORE PML-N MNA Hamza Shahbaz Sharif visited low-lying roads and crossings of the provincial metropolis during heavy rain on Monday and supervised drainage operation. He went to Laxmi Chowk, Do Moria Pull, Aik Moria Pull, Misri Shah, Chowk Nakhuda, Shadbagh, Circular Road, Fort Road and other areas of Lahore. MPA Khawaja Imran Nazir and Media Coordinator Imran Ali Goraya accompanied him. Talking to media on this occasion, Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said the disposal of rainwater from Northern Lahore as well as old city was a long-standing problem, and due to mobilisation of WASA, LDA, Solid Waster Management and other civic agencies, rainwater was drained within hours whereas these areas used to remain submerged for days in the past. Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said Lahore had received such a heavy rain after 15 years, but civic agencies were utilising all available resources for the disposal of rainwater. A drainage project costing Rs 40 billion is being implemented in Northern Lahore and this problem has been resolved in those areas where the project has been completed. The drainage problems of the city are due to neglect of decades. However the present government is striving for resolve them through implementation of a comprehensive project, he said.
