Dr. Fahmida Mirza – Speaker National Assembly – the soft image of Badin

Badin may have lost its political significance today but there was a time in the Talpur era when the district was a power centre. Now this coastal district is more in the news for its cyclones and heavy rains which often bring misery for its populace. Badin has endured weather disasters such as heavy rains and cyclones since the last five years, which destroy its precious crops and livestock, severely affecting the local agricultural infrastructure. Unfortunately the previous government has rarely come to the assistance of the people. Even though Badin is rich in natural resources, the residents continue to live in deplorable conditions.
