Bilawal plans 10,000 gallons of drinking water for Thar


WEB DESK – A comprehensive plan, though only as an announcement so far, had been laid down by Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for the people of drought-hit Thar which would provide them at least 10,000 gallons of safe drinking water on daily basis.

The young chief of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had planned to install as many as 683 solar-powered water plants across the deserted region of Thar as future initiatives to protect life.

According to an official communique issued by the party in regard of International Water Day, Bilawal vowed for greener Sindh. It was stated “As the world observes the International Water Day today, we reiterate our commitment to ensure a well-irrigated and greener Sindh and Pakistan.”

Bilawal also admired his party’s government in Sindh which, according to him, had taken revolutionary initiatives for the revitalization of irrigation resources.

As many as 130 minors faced death due to drought in Thar. Sindh government could only initiate the relief activities when media highlighted the incidents of mass death-rate in the area. However, Sindh’s government arrangements in the area remained flash point for being too naive. One fine example is when Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif visited the calamity-hit region, Sindh government had arranged exotic lunch for him at the cost of starved people.
