KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said that it would take two months to drain floodwater from Sindh. CM Sindh was talking to media in Larkana Ratodero, where he said, “Still no one has an idea of how much rain has fallen in Sindh. I have been to districts across Sindh and visited many campuses.

People are sitting on streets and they have come to Larkana from different districts.” Murad said, “It has rained equally to water of 20 dams like Tarbela Dam in Sindh. Water can enter Indus River only through Manchhar Lake and there is no alternative to it. It will take time for water to leave areas.” He said that average rainfall was 1,100 mm across Sindh and up to 1,800 mm in some areas. Every district from Kashmore to Sehwan presents scene of river. He claimed that 140 million acres of land had come under water.

He said that only 4 to 4.5 lakh tents have been distributed so far, which is not enough. “Foreign aid has certainly been received and I am grateful to everyone. Only 10,000 tents have been received by combining all aid,” he claimed.
