MNA Dr. Arif Alvi said:

  • KWSB is a defaulter, corrupt, inefficient and politically influenced.
  • KWSB should immediately be handed over to the Rangers as a short term solution.
  • Political factors are fully behind both land mafia and water tanker mafia.
  • If an investigation into the bank accounts and properties of KWSB employees is conducted it would tell the real story.

MُPA Samar Ali Khan said:

  • Both the PPP and the MQM miserably failed to address the water shortage issue of the city whenever they remained in power. 
  • Officials of the KWSB were involved in this water theft and they were making millions of rupees.

MPA Khurrum Sher Zaman said:

  • Water shortage in Karachi is not a new issue. 
  • Why even low-paid KWSB employees had lavish bungalows in the Defence Housing Authority?

Secretary General PTI Karachi Aziz Afridi said:

  • To make KWSB an independent institute, immediate action should be taken.

Leader PTI Karachi Firdos Naqvi said:

  • Water is not available for the people, from where is the tanker mafia getting water from?
