Hyderabad left to decay

Published Jul 06, 2013 03:06am

THE city of Hyderabad, the second largest city of Sindh, has been left to the mercy of its incompetent management.

The city offers booming business for agriculture, small-medium enterprises and bangles which all require proper roads for heavy traffic to travel.

Upon entering the city from the main bypass, one can see roads dug up with no repair work being carried out.

The traffic jams in Hyderabad can last for hours only because of having a bad road network.

The main Market Tower area and beyond have open manholes in the middle of the road. Localities like Qasimabad and Naseem Nagar have damaged street lights and open gutter systems which have been in the same condition for more than five years.

The condition of the road in Latifabad, where many restaurants have opened up, is miserable. There are hardly any traffic signals but those installed are non-functional.

The water supplied to the entire city is dirty and seems not to have undergone treatment for removing bacteria while overflowing gutters can be seen in several parts of the city.

It seems taxpayers’ money is going in vain. The government should ensure that taxpayers’ money is utilised honestly.

One of the best cities in Pakistan is now one of the worst due to politics. None of the political parties have any interest in the city. The people who get elected have places to live in Karachi and that is their real city. They get elected and spend their most time outside doing their business. Hyderabad will continue to go down hill irrespective of which political party wins.

I'm sorry to read about the condition of Hyderabad and I hope it improves soon. But on the bright side you've gotten rid of the Hindus and Sindhis so things can only get better.
