THARPARKAR: Another four children perished in drought-hit Thar district, exposing government claims of relief measures adopted in the affected region, ARY News reported on Tuesday.
Scores of children have died so far due to drought while government machinery was seen working in Mithi district alone. PPP MPA Sharmila Farooqui claimed that children’s death was caused by illness, not the drought. She, however, did not speak about the authorities responsible for ensuring proper health facilities to the people.
Victims living in far-off in the drought-stricken district said they had not received any relief goods from the government.
Many livestock have also been perished in the wake of drought.
