ISLAMABAD, Sep 28 (DNA) : Parliamentary Secretary for Religious Affairs Aftab Jehangir on Tuesday said that the Sindh government and Karachi Water & Sewerage Board (KWSB) were responsible for the water crisis in Karachi city.

He said that due to the incompetence of the Sindh government several projects including K4 were being delayed in the past, which needs attention on a war footing basis.

He said the management of KWSB should revamp the water distribution system in Karachi.
