The Government of Sindh has decided to promote swimming by letting the streets of Karachi turn into swimming pools so that we can produce some good swimmers for the Olympics. #KarachiRain pic.twitter.com/E8xcV3qGEc

The situation is out of hands and people are worried as to the possibility of this being the situation after every spell. Apart from the problems that come with drowned streets, it’s also important to remember how electricity shortages and internet lock down are also a result of these showers. Something needs to be done about this so that the people of Karachi can enjoy a season meant to be enjoyed. What are your thoughts on the issue, let us know in the comments section.
