Severe water shortage hits Rawalpindi
Severe water shortage hits Rawalpindi.
Rawalpindi – Several areas of Rawalpindi have begun to reel under severe water shortage leaving people to run here and there in search of the basic need of life.
The water tanker owners have increased the price from Rs3,000 to Rs4,000 while doubling the miseries of the citizens.
Interestingly water is being supplied to homes by the tanker owners with a time span of four to five days that too after advance booking.
Similarly, the inhabitants of Rawalpindi and Chaklala cantonment boards are also living without water while the civic bodies have failed to supply the basic commodity to the residents, sparking protests and agitations.
“Dhama Syedan, Ali Town, Ziarat Baba Miran Mustafa and Khatana Village are without water for many months but WASA and local politicians failed to solve the issue,” said many residents while talking to The Nation.
Ziaullah Shah, the newly appointed WASA chairman and former PML-N MPA from Rawalpindi, said that the water shortage had become a big issue in the city and he would play his role in getting more water for the residents.
The situation is very bad in Rawalpindi and Chaklala cantonment boards.
The water situation is worst on the suburbs, which lack a proper water supply scheme.
