KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Karachi president and MPA Khurram Sher Zaman on Tuesday said that the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) was a “most corrupt organisation”.

He alleged that the board minted money on water tankers and water was supplied through them in no time.

He stated this while talking to media persons after meeting the managing director of the KWSB at his office here.

Mr Sher Zaman alleged that the board collected piles of money for the provincial ministers in the province.

He said that the citizens of the metropolis were facing severe shortage of water as he received a deluge of calls daily to this effect.

He said “we are receiving complaints from Saddar, Burnes Road, Korangi, Clifton and other areas of the city”.
