JAMSHORO: Se­nior Sindh Min­is­ter for Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Mir Hazar Khan Bi­jarani said that Man­char Lake is an eco­nomic and cul­tural as­set of Sindh and all the stake­hold­ers must come for­ward for its re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. He said that the greed and ir­re­spon­si­ble in­ter­ven­tions of hu­mans have com­pletely changed the en­vi­ron­men­tal sce­nario of the Man­char Lake. “The dis­posal of un­treated ef­flu­ents and other pol­lu­tants have dumped into the lake, which has poi­soned the lake wa­ter”, this he said while speak­ing in the Na­tion Work­shop on the As­sess­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Degra­da­tion of Man­char Lake, a joint re­search study con­ducted by U.S. Pak­istan Cen­ter for Ad­vanced Stud­ies in Wa­ter (USPCAS-W) of Mehran Univer­sity of En­gi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy (MUET) Jamshoro and Pak­istan Coun­cil of Re­search in Wa­ter Re­sources (PCRWR), Gov­ern­ment of Pak­istan, held at USPCAS-W MUET. He said that it is es­tab­lished fact that Man­char Lake, the largest fresh­wa­ter lake in Asia, has been renowned for its rich flora and fauna, as well as sus­tain­ing fish­ing and agri­cul­tural com­mu­ni­ties through the lake wa­ter.
