While he said in his tweets that many roads are clear he also shared videos of many drains inviting people to see how fast the water is going from the roads to the drains.

After the rains in Karachi the roads and streets are filled with water many experts attribute the encroachment on the centuries old natural drains due to which the water does not immediately find its way to the sea.

In the last few years the government promises to clean the drains and end their encroachment every once in a while but in each rain the condition of the roads does not change much compared to the previous rain.

Many videos & photos of the streets of Karachi were posted on social media, in which people criticized the Pakistan People's Party PPP provincial government. It should be noted that administrator Karachi Murtaza Wahab is also related to PPP.

In the videos circulating on Twitter people posted videos of their own areas apparently denying the government claims of drainage & some people even took out the side of humor in this difficult time.

Shahid Ali posted a video of Tariq Road 1 of the busiest areas of Karachi on his Twitter account in which water can be seen accumulating on the road.
