Karachi’s Fatima Jinnah Colony has been left in a deplorable state owing to negligence by the city’s civic agencies.

Heaps of rubbish and sewerage water can be seen in the colony located in District Central. Residents are complaining about sanitation problems. “We can’t pass through the area,” a resident said.

The colony is named after Fatima Jinnah, the sister of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammed Ali Jinnah. “You can see filthy garbage everywhere around the locality,” she complained.

“Sometimes, our children, carrying schoolbags fall into the sewerage water,” she said. Our abayas get dirty when we come out of our houses for work, she said.

District Central Chairperson Rehan Hashmi lamented a lack of resources when SAMAA TV asked him about the deteriorating condition of the colony. “However, it is our responsibility to set it in order despite the fact that we don’t have resources,” said Hashmi.

It is due to the dereliction of duty by the city government that roads and parks in the colony are in a bad condition, a citizen said.
