River embankment goes vulnerable after seepage of water


NAUNDERO: Seepage of floodwater has occurred in Indus River Nusrat Loop protective embankment near Bhambho Shaikh village.

This dyke has already been declared sensitive by the irrigation department & district administration but a visit of a team of journalists to it showed that there was no irrigation official to look after the embankment round the clock.

The villagers of nearby localities are themselves monitoring it. Villagers Nadir Shaikh, Imdad Shaikh and others told media team that trrigation authorities have left the dyke unattended and they are not monitoring. They said the villagers are constantly keeping eye over it because water level is rising constantly and its flow is very fast.

They said that they are passing sleepless nights due to the sensitiveness of the dyke which is seeping near villages Ghulam Ali Shaikh and Bhambho Shaikh. They demanded that the embankment must be repaired immediately otherwise it can cause flood and damage entire localities including Naundero & Garhi Khuda Bux.
