The biggest problem of Sindh is its water crisis and we will solve it, said Governor Imran Ismail.

“I will take all stakeholders on board for the benefit of the province,” he told the media after reciting Fateha at the Quaid-i-Azam mausoleum in Karachi on Tuesday.

“I will do my best for the progress of the province,” said Ismail. He added that he will look into the Green Line and other projects as well.

Sindh’s water crisis has been one of the most pressing issues affecting the province. Riots and protests have broken out in the past over water shortage, especially during the hot summer months.

On August 14, police denied Ismail entry to the Quaid-i-Azam mausoleum on Independence Day, upsetting the party leader. The then nominee for Sindh governor of the PTI had led a party delegation to the mausoleum on August 14 but left after he was denied entry. “Sir, the time was 11:30am and I waited till 12:15pm,” he can be heard saying to a police officer in a video. “You should tell them [policemen] that they can continue working for the PPP.”
