Residents of UC Malh Malir Karim Bukhsh Birohi, Muhammad Younus AK Khaskheli, Munir Ahmed Balouch and others held press conference at Awami Press Club Malir regarding water shortage in different communities of UC Malh here on yesterday.
They told in conference that Sama, Baloch, Birohi, Jamot and other communities are bereft from drinking water since last two years and residents have become anxious for a drop of water in hot weather although elected representative and member of District Council Karachi Shafi Brohi is selling water of oldest communities to Cattle-sheds, private residential schemes like Gulshan Faizan, Gulshan Mustafa, block making factories and others with the support of water Board but on the other hand all communities are deprived from fundamental facility of drinking water.
They blamed that District Councillor when took part in local government elections he was having nothing but today he is owner of cattle-sheds so NAB and other departments should have inquiry against his corruption.
They said that many time they grumbled to District Council Karachi Chairman Salman Abdullah Murad regarding water shortage issue but still no step has been taken by him for the solution of problem so residents have come in suspension that he may be District Councillor’s corruption partner.
They declared that if their water shortage issue is not be resolved within two days then they will have expostulation and sitting in against administration.
Social heads demanded from Chief Minister of Sindh, Minister of Local Government, area’s MNA and others concerned officers to provide drinking water to inhabitants of communities in order to kill discontent of them
