Many areas of this city remained filled with sewerage drain water and people had to resort to protest demonstrations as the sewerage lines were not regularly cleared by the concerned sanitation staff.
While addressing the gathering at Shahnawaz Bhutto library Talpur said that within next two months no overflowing sewerage water will be visible on Larkana roads.
During the arrival of the MNA, all nearby roads were sealed due to which patients who had to reach to CMC Hospital faced immense problems.
