Sindh CM says reports on Thar drought
KARACHI (Staff Report) – Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah said on Friday that there was no drought in Thar.

Talking to media after his visits to Mithi and other parts of Tharparkar district, Shah rejected all reports of there being a drought-like situation in Thar.

“The provincial government has been providing free wheat to thousands of families to mitigate their sufferings and has also installed Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants to ensure water supply to the people of those parts of the region where a shortage of food and water is reported,” the CM said.
