Death rate is increasing in Tharparkar as one more child of five years died in Mithi. The number of children died in Mithi has reached to 119, a big number that can not be neglected.
The death toll in overall Tharparkar Area has been raised to more than 320 children.
The famine was not created by natural factors but is is clear that it was the willful negligence of Sindh government.
People of locality says that the government is less concerned to people of Tharparkar as over 20 percent of health professionals and officers in the provincial government, who originally hailed from the drought-struck district, had not been posted there.
However government is still denying any responsibility of famine and rejected all allegations.
Earlier Senator Taj Haider, coordinator of the Tharparkar Relief Committee (TRC) formed by the Sindh government, had denied that hunger and malnutrition were behind the number of deaths, claiming instead that pre-mature births and poor maternal health were the biggest culprits.
Taj had added that the Sindh government was vigilant of the drought and was pursuing a long-term strategy involving development of the entire district, rather than simply providing emergency aid.
