'India reached the Moon while children in Karachi...': Pakistani lawmaker in viral parliamentary speech

New Delhi/Karachi/IBNS: Pakistani lawmaker Syed Mustafa Kamal has lauded India's mission to the Moon while slamming the deplorable situation in Karachi during an address to Parliament on Wednesday.

Kamal highlighted that Karachi is grappling with deplorable civic facilities while India has successfully reached the Moon.

"The world is on the Moon while children in Karachi are falling into gutters which remain open. On the same television screen, India is in the news for reaching the Moon, while Karachi for children falling in open gutters," Kamal said.

Kamal also said people in Karachi lack fresh water.

He has also cited a report which claimed 70 lakh children in Karachi and 2.6 crore children in Pakistan are not able to go to schools.

In a game-changing feat in India's space exploration, the country's lunar mission Chandrayaan-3 successfully soft-landed on the South Polar region of the moon last year as a nation of 1.4 billion people erupted in joy and pride ending an anxious wait for the moment.

The success of this Moon mission has made India the fourth country to master the technology of soft-landing on the lunar surface after the US, China, and the erstwhile Soviet Union.
