Bilawal shared his thoughts on the Karachi rains and that backfired real quick
Rains are proving absolutely disastrous for the city of Karachi. The entire city has faced tremendous flooding and power outages since the monsoon season started. Karachi had yet another rainy day today, and the city was again yelping for help.
The situation in Karachi with the rain is so terrible that many areas are completely under water

So much so that the sinking of Karachi due to negligence and climate change showing their results during this rainfall have been the biggest topics on social media
Every citizen was having a major meltdown on social media and was demanding the authorities to take necessary actions
Bilawal Zardari also shared his “thoughts and prayers” over the Karachi situation
He started by stating the fact that almost every resident of Karachi has already witnessed. He asked everyone to pray for the people working in this ”unprecedented” natural disaster. Hasn’t it been a week already?
As of yesterday Sindh had seen its worst monsoons in 90years. Today super monsoon torrential rains & floods continue unabated. Please keep all those in your thoughts who have already been working 24/7 to assist citizens during this record breaking unprecedented natural disaster.

Seeing this rather tone deaf response, people are naturally angry because it is Bilawal’s party that has been one of the ruling parties of the city for a very long time
you and your parasitic party should have been one of those working to rescue people. all of you are only feudal scum, turning everything you touch to lead

Clearly, many have had enough of such empty promises and statements from politicians

People are blaming Bilawal and PPP for the hellhole that Karachi is now
U made sure to buy land cruisers and Mercedes when the common population did not have an escape system, did not have a proper rescue system.

They are reminding him that no part of the Karachi Rains was ”unprecedented” and that Met authorities had bee warning of heavy rainfall this season
Sorry. But, it was well informed from the MET. Also, Karachi has specific duration for rainy days every year. So, major share of blame will remain on your party as it is on the provincial govt level since 12 consecutive years in which 5 years as federal govt as well.

From ”zayada Barish hoti hai, tou zayada pani ata hai” to sweeping a major disaster under the rug, politicians across the board, including Bilawal, have surely done a lot for Karachiites. The people have already been through a lot with their homes and cars flooded, roofs dripping and water levels literally near their shoulders and lives and livelihoods lost. All we can hope is that the authorities take the situation seriously and take the necessary measures.
Team MangoBaaz sends our prayers to all the people suffering. May we never have to see such a wreck again and may we be prepared for this climate change to get worse.
