DHA rain water drains
DHA is working round the clock to complete what appears to be a fairly ambitious (and rather ambiguous) program of making a network of drains that will carry rain water from defence into the sea. Well, good enough.
But, the drains appear to be square in shape and therefore, will allow maximum of silt to collect. That will cause lot of space to be filled up pretty fast. And that’s bad news for the people of defence, Karachi.
Secondly, some of the drains appear to be above road level. Well, how will water go down the drain when they are up and above the roads from which they are supposed to carry water?
Thirdly, it is not very clear how DHA plans to cope with the situation when rains finally decide to pour down during this week. Drains are at best incomplete though DHA management looks happy go lucky.
DHA has avoided such technical questions on the ground that they are working very hard and that people must stop talking and help them instead.
God help us all!
