One of the biggest areas of concern is the rise in death and life risking diseases is the stale, unhealthy and contaminated food items and spurious drinks sold out here in Karachi and Government has totally turned a blind eye towards it.
Children swarms around pushcarts and become vulnerable to occasional diseases. It further causes poor body defence mechanism among children. It’s depressing to acknowledge that just greasing the palms of police and concerned authorities permit the reopening of the restaurants which killed many among us.
Keeping an eye on illegal vendors, establishing laboratories to check the food samples, sealing unregistered factories, imposing heavy fines on usage of contaminated ways and most importantly raiding these places is very crucial at this stage.
