The city government of Karachi is doing really good work for the city. People should appreciate it. I would like to divert the attention of city Nazim Karachi to the problem of open manholes in the city. There are lidless manholes in the middle of the city roads, which is as outrageous as it is dangerous. The open manholes not just damage vehicles falling into them but also cause accidents involving pedestrians. The civic body should at least put a signboard or something near the lidless manholes situated in the middle of the roads. I hope that city Nazim would soon look into this matter and all the lidless manholes would be covered soon. -MADIHA ZAIDI, Karachi, via e-mail, December 14.
