We as a nation have not been grateful, and are always criticizing everything. With this criticism, they are not defaming the name of Sindh government or any official, they are defaming their city and country. A lot of positive things are happening in the city.

Zubair Chhaya said that in the recent rains, posh areas could not be spared from destruction, but due to the timely actions of the Sindh government, the Korangi industrial area was quickly restored. The flood water of Balochistan passed through the Korangi Causeway in which many vehicles and motorcycles got stuck, but lives of 6 people and their property were saved by the timely action of the authorities. He said that our priority is Pakistan, if there was no Pakistan today, today we would not be breathing freely.
