He criticized the inefficiency of the caretaker government for halting the construction of the Red Line corridor. Local Government Minister Saeed Ghani addressed water supply issues, warning that shutting down six legally operating water hydrants would worsen the water crisis in Karachi.

Efforts to Mitigate Water Shortages

Ghani explained that there is a significant gap between the supply and demand of water in Karachi, with a current shortfall of 30 mgd from the Hub Dam. He outlined ongoing development projects aimed at restoring water supply, including a project to restore the Hub Dam canal, which is expected to provide 150 million gallons of water daily to the city upon completion. Ghani also noted the demolition of 220 illegal hydrants and the provision of metered water connections to six legal hydrants to ensure controlled water distribution.
