Additional Vice Chairman of KWSB Muhammad Moin Khan, Imamuddin Shahzad, M.D KWSB Qutub-uddin Shaikh and other officers also accompanied him on this visit.

City Nazim on this occasion said that Karachi Water and Sewerage Board is the only organization in Karachi that fulfills water requirements of more than 18 million people. Therefore, it should make planning for future besides the recovery of dues from consumers so that the citizens should not have to suffer due to water or sewerage related problems.
