MIRPURKHAS - Rainfall continued intermittently in the city and other areas of the district on the fourth consecutive day on Thursday as a result of which hardships for the people increased. Most parts of the city, barring some main roads, were under the knee-deep water till the filing of this news. The district administration and the Municipal Committee (MC) staff failed to drain out the rainwater, while persistent rain has forced a large number of people to move to safer places. On the other hand, those stranded at their homes due to water staged a sit-in against the poor performance of MC.

Apart from that, members of the civil society, religious and political organisations have also hit out at the MC, and appealed to the higher authorities to ensure immediate drainage of the rainwater.
