CM Murad takes notice of water shortage
Taking notice of the water shortage in some districts of Sindh, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah directed the irrigation department to “immediately release water in relevant systems so that people and their cattle could drink water”.
“Due to the acute shortage of water in the Indus River, its main canals and distributaries have dried up, therefore, people — particularly living on the tail end of the right bank of the river — were running from pillar to post to fetch water,” the CM was quoted as saying in a press release issued by his office.
The statement said that CM Shah had directed Irrigation Minister Jam Khan Shoro to make necessary arrangements to release water in the distributaries of tail-end districts of Thatta, Sujawal, Badin and others so that people and their cattle could drink water.
