KARACHI: Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) must ensure swift water supply in areas including Baldia Town, Sher Shah, Pak Colony, Keemari, and Muhammadi Road.
MNA Khwaja Suhail Mansoor and MPA Abdul Haseeb Khan demanded in a meeting with KWSB Managing Director Misbahuddin Farid, and other officers, including technical staff and engineers.
It was stressed that KWSB officers and staff must make sure that they fulfil their religious, moral and professional duties with honesty. They added that there have been reports of neglect of duties by KWSB in the past, which is not a good sign. MD KWSB Farid directed DMD TS to certify that the problems pointed out by elected representatives are resolved in a timely manner, and all technical issues must be dealt as soon as possible. He directed them to reschedule Bulk Water Supply to see if all areas get a fair share during Ramazan.
Farid also approved of all pending work including the replacement of 160-feet pipeline to change the angle of the 48-inch diameter line. staff report
