The post-2015 agenda is now only two months away to be finalised.

Our Commissioner, Shoaib Siddiqui, last Sunday ordered the removal of encroachment in 30 storm drains to allow rain water to flow freely to the sea. The encroachers are not impressed. They are not co-operating with the 3,000 clean-up crew, that is, 100 per storm drain, because they know this order and this show of efficiency is just a formality they have to endure every rainy season.
