Sindh Assembly building roof leaks after heavy rain

The Sindh Assembly building’s roof started leaks almost immediately after it started raining in the metropolitan area, and water was splashing into the lobby.

Following the significant rainfall that was observed in Karachi, the roof of the Sindh Assembly started to develop leaks. After Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Shahzad Qureshi posted a video of the leak on Twitter, the PPP-led Sindh government began to face criticism for its handling of the situation.

A number of Members of Parliament could be heard expressing alarm in the video that the ceiling would cave in as a result of the leaks.

Shahzad Qureshi, Khurram Sher Zaman, and Saeed Afridi, members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), have voiced their concern over the fact that the red zone of Karachi has been flooded after only 10 minutes of rain. This area includes the Chief Minister’s House as well as the Sindh Assembly building.

As a result of the flooding in the assembly hall, Shahzad Qureshi made the accusation that the Sindh government had thrown away millions of rupees in squandered money. According to him, “this demonstrates how corrupt the Government of Sindh is,” and he reinforced this point.

It is important to note that rain-lashed numerous parts of the port city as the pre-monsoon spell persisted across the country. This information is crucial to this discussion.

This afternoon, rain fell in the Karachi neighborhoods of Malir, Shah Faisal Colony, Landhi, Korangi, Saddar, Lyari, North Karachi, Surjani Town, Nagan Chowrangi, and Godhra. In addition, North Karachi was also affected by the precipitation.

According to a recent forecast released by the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), monsoon currents are currently making their way into the country and are likely to do so for the next 24 to 48 hours. After the weekend, there is a good chance that the monsoon currents may get stronger.
