Karachiites continue to strive for drinking water despite authorities’ tall claims
KARACHI (92 News) – People continued to strive for drinking water despite tall claims of the authorities concerned regarding free provision of water through tankers.
Citizens told 92 News that the Water Board managing director had announced to provide free water, but it proved to be a political statement.
They said that announcement had benefited only hydrants and tanker mafias that restarted water theft. “Long queues of tankers can be seen at hydrants which were earlier closed after being declared illegal,” they said.
They said that the water crisis is artificial. “The water system should be improved before Ramazan so that they could get water,” they maintained.
The Water Board officials said that they had not received instructions to get free tankers.
