Water, now days, seems to be a rare commodity and the citizens are forced to purchase water tankers on considerably higher rates. MD Water Board, Hashim Raza Zaidi instead of resolving the issue of water supply seemed helpless before the tanker mafia.
The question rises where from the tanker mafia is being supplied water for selling, when citizens in nearly half of the areas of the city are longing for a single drop of it.
On the other hand, PTI lawmaker Arif Alvi today demanded the government to give the water supply system under Pakistan Rangers supervision for three months.
Although, the minister for Local Bodies led many operations against tanker mafia, illegal water supply lines were also cut off, yet when the matter was taken up in the Sindh Assembly it could not be pursued with required seriousness.
Interests of the lawmakers and demands aside, but the citizens call for the provision of this basic need to them.
