The Sindh United Party (SUP) on Saturday took out rallies in different towns of Badin district to register its protest against the unavailability of water in most parts of the district.

Panhwar and other leaders held the rulers responsible for the injudicious distribution of water, leading to the worst crisis in Sindh.

“The water share of Sindh was being diverted to ‘food canals’ of Punjab and the people in lower parts of Sindh have been deprived of drinking water,” he said. He went on to say that the people living along the coastal belt were forced to drink contaminated water from lakes.

They slammed Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, his cabinet members and Federal Minister for Water Resources Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah for their “misleading” statements on the current flows of water in the system.
