ISLAMABAD - The government strategy to handle flood situation in the twin cities could not work as recent rains and flood water have multiplied the civic problems especially in the low-lying localities. Like every year this time again citizens of the twin cities are suffering through damages and fear of devastating flood. "There is need to do something on emergency basis to control floods at the twin cities' problematic nullahs. Emergency base national level strategy should be adopted to overcome the 100 years bitter history of Monsoon," District Nazim Rawalpindi Raja Javed Ikhlas stated this while talking to  TheNation. "Only cleaning, digging, and sewerage work at these nullahs under the 'Environmental Improvement Programme' could not work to control the flood, especially in the low-lying areas of the twin cities. He alleged the that the CDA's plan to install three water ponds in Islamabad to control the heavy water flow of Margalla Hills towards Rawalpindi, which caused heavy flood in the city that already having problematic nullahs, has not been materialised so far. He asked the Authority to ensure early construction of water ponds to reserve the Hills' water in the Capital. When contacted the Chairman CDA, Kamran Lashari said that expressed his ignorance about such a kind of plan ever underconsideration and said, " Actually it was not a plan but an idea, which doesn't have a clear feasibility," he added. He said that blaming CDA by Pindi government seemed to be a very half-backed excuse.  "The officials of Pindi government wake up from their slumber sleep at the time when water crosses their heads. If any such project exists then they do not protest against those who are creating hurdles in way of executing the project," he added. However, Kamran Lashari suggested that if the plan could help control floods in the twin cities then CDA would coordinate with Pindi administration to tackle the situation.   Talking to the TheNation, the residents of the twin citizens complained that non-serious attitude of the officials concerned towards big problem, which caused several precious lives every year, is main obstacle.   "No one is serious to sort out long-term solution of the problem," said Mushtaq Khan, Principal of a School at Rawalpindi.   Wasim Saleem is residing nearby Nullah Leh, said, "Every year many precious lives had been lost owing to floods, but still planning seemed to be monsoon-based only." "It was the obligation of provincial government to make ensure the completion of Leh Express way Project and must gives due attention to this serious matter without any further delay," the Javed Ikhlas disclosed. During the monsoon, traffic jam is witnessed on main Muree Road and new constructed Avenues in the twin cities, which were damaged during the heavy rain. "The construction of the three interchanges over Mareer, Ammar and Katarian Bridges would resolve the traffic problems and it was also the part of the Leh Express Way Project," he added. However, the Nazim said that local government had activated the WASA, TMA, WAPDA, 1122, 10 cores, Civil Defense, Health Departments and all hospitals of the city were on high alert to meet any emergency situation, but the issue was high than local government access. "Hospitals of the twin cities, in normal condition, did not treat the citizen accordingly then how it was possible to work on emergency basis," said Malik Umer, resident of Sector I/10, Islamabad. Adil Muneer, a schoolteacher in Katchi Abadi, sector F-11, feared that if more rain lashed the Capital then unacceptable loss of lives property might happen to the resident of twin cities, especially of low-lying areas. "This is not the solution as every time government has made announcements to shift to safer places but it is not possible for low-lying areas' poor residents to afford the sky-rocketing rents of the houses in the safe places. "It was the foremost duty of the government to provide them safe shelters without any charges," Sufian Abbasi, a social developmental practitioner at Bhara Kahu demanded.
