Letter: Water and electricity shortage in Gwadar

Gwadar has been facing acute shortage of water but no remedial measures have been taken yet. In the holy month of Ramdan people are walking from miles for searching water. According to the reports 62% of Balochistan is deprived of safe drinking water and more than 58% of its land is uncultivable due to water scarcity.

It makes us really woe gone that always the people of Balochistan are left to suffer. They are deprived of electricity, water, nutritious food, healthcare facilities, education and many more to name them, but water shortage is the main problem because of it no one can survive.

While the government is trying to build a world-class port but the city remains deprived of water and electricity.

Munaj Gul Baloch, Turbat.
