It has been raining non-stop in Karachi and everyone is begging for it to end.
All year round, everyone makes fun of Karachiites being tarsay hue for baarish. And of course, when it finally does rain in the city, it pours and most of the times, the city’s infrastructure cannot handle the crazy amounts of rain it tends to get.
A few people tend to still look on the bright side.

But most people are just upset about the rain after a while since it leads to half of the city being water clogged.

With half the city submerged in water and some parts of it on fire, Karachiites were incredibly upset at the government for being unable to handle crises like these. And since the monsoon season is expected every year, it is clearly negligent of them to have not made changes to infrastructure beforehand to account for it.
And no one is ever ready to shoulder the responsibility for the city.
Karachi Pani Pani
Water & Garbage Accumulation Everywhere.
City, Province & Federal Governments Putting Responsibilities On Each Other.

If Sindh Govt is incapable and incompetent & PTI is unwilling to deliver in Karachi,then Karachi will not take part in political process anymore..because even after voting for a federal political party their issues are still there.. pathetic infrastructure, no water, KE issues… https://t.co/g7bdHvVWgI

It is honestly heartbreaking to see Karachi become paralyzed because of rain. The responsibility is always shoved off to the new government or another department or official body. Yet, little is done towards actually improving things.
What do you think about the rain situation in Karachi? Let us know in the comments below.
