The agencies involved have been put on high alert, and civic groups and Rescue 1122 will work together to help if the nullah floods.
Tanveer Ahmed, who is in charge of the Water and Sanitation Agency (Wasa), Awais Manzoor Tarrar, who is in charge of the RWMC, and other officials were also there.
The commissioner told the Provincial Disaster Management Authority to keep its system up to date and let people know what’s going on as soon as possible. He said that water building up anywhere shouldn’t change how people live their daily lives.
Mr. Mengal also said that areas with a high risk of flooding, like Ratta Amral, Katarian, Tipu Road, Dhoke Najju, Gawalmandi, and Ziaul Haq Colony, should be given extra care so that water doesn’t build up in low-lying areas. Rawalpindi commissioner removes encroachments along Leh Nullah.
