I would like to draw attention of the municipal authorities towards the scarcity of water in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi. In our locality, Railway Housing Society Scheme, there is no fixed time for the supply of water. Sometimes the supply is halted consecutively for four to five days. Water is a basic necessity. The availability of clean water is a basic right of every citizen. But in our country, minimum is done to satisfy citizens’ needs.
In fact, the water which is being supplied is not fit for consumption. It is laced with all kinds of pollutants. Although several complaints were made to the relevant department, the authorities have taken no action in this regard. The use of contaminated water has affected the lives of citizens. It is the responsibility of the government to take immediate steps to resolve the problem.
