In­creas­ing deaths

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - FIDA ZA­MAN

Once again death toll in Thar has reached at a risky level. Ear­lier, in drought hit Thar many chil­dren went to the val­ley of death. Due to the ir­re­pon­si­bil­ity of the govern­ment, deaths cre­ated a record in the his­tory of Sindh.

Over last few months, ap­prox­i­mately, the deaths of 1308 chil­dren were re­ported due to mal­nu­tri­tion. But now be­cause of the un­avail­abil­ity of wa­ter, 27 chil­dren lost their pre­cious lives in the desert ar­eas of Thar. The con­cerned au­thor­i­ties have failed to ad­dress this sit­u­a­tion. The Sindh Govern­ment es­pe­cially PPP lead­ers are ur­gently re­quested to take ac­tion to make sure wa­ter sup­ply in Thar.
