About the Public Holiday

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has declared Friday August 28th as a public holiday due to the heavy rains across the province.

The Sindh Chief Minister said in a statement that all government, semi-government and private institutions across the province would remain closed on Friday.

However, the offices of essential service institutions, municipalities, health, water board, PDMA and revenue will remain open.

Talking about the weather situation, the Sindh Chief Minister said that the rains would continue intermittently till Friday evening. He said the government is in contact with the Army, Navy and NDMA. He warned that settlements and population along the nullahs are at risk of flooding.

Murad Ali Shah said that rainwater will be drained once the downpour stops because if it rains again, it will cause even more trouble. He appealed to the citizens not to leave their homes.

He said that water has entered houses everywhere including less developed areas of the city. He also said that Ministers have been on duty in each district overseeing relief operations and called the torrential rains a natural calamity which will have long-reaching effects.
