A WHO report finds that more than 12.5 million deaths around the world each year are associated with living in an unhealthy environment. An unhealthy environment causes 1 in 4 deaths but why should our rulers and bureaucrat be worried about unhealthy environment and pollution of all sorts everywhere because, more or less, all of them have already shifted their wives, siblings and other kith and kin abroad and here even they live in such posh areas where pollution is only a fiction but not reality.

Why should they not let the people of Larkano, Karachi, Hyderabad, Jamshoro and such like other cities, where manholes are open and gutters are overflowing and there is none to gather/pick up garbage die such a premature death due to unhealthy environment.
