HEALTH HAZARDS

HEALTH HAZARDS: An ineffective sewerage system is the main cause of unhygienic conditions in Karachi. While the whole city is struggling on this count, some areas are struggling more than the rest. Mehmoodabad is one such area where people are forced to live under such conditions. The area is littered with garbage, and overflowing sewers leave the lanes filled with sludge, making life unbearable with stink in the air. Does anyone care about this?

ROAD ACCIDENTS: Balochistan has no dearth of issues affecting the life of the common man one way or the other. While there is precious little that may be done in the case of several of such issues, but the number of fatal road traffic accidents (RTAs) across the province can surely be controlled. Most of the important highways and roads do not have safety barriers installed that may guide or stop an out-of-control vehicle. The National Highway Authority (NHA) must wake up before more lives are lost on Balochistan’s killer roads.
