Ram inaugurates water supply scheme for Mirpurkhas

KARACHI: Provincial Minister for Food and Minority Affairs Hari Ram Kishori Lal while inaugurating the water supply scheme for Satellite Town Mirpurkhas and adjoining areas said that another promise made to the people of Mirpurkhas had been fulfilled.

The project will cost about Rs 80 million. Kishori Lal said that the PPP had always taken steps to fulfill basic needs of the people at their doorstep. The project will provide clean water to Satellite Town and its adjoining areas including Bhan Singhabad, Memon Para, Rewa Chandgarden, Loco, Merwah Bus Stand, Phatak and Mir Sher Muhammad Khan Talpur.

He said that the project would provide ample supply of clean drinking water to the residents of Satellite Town and adjoining areas. The provincial minister said that few months ago, a clean drinking water project for most parts of the city at a cost of over Rs58 crore had been completed.

Lal further said that with the completion of the project, through 24 inch water supply line from West Jamrao to Union Council No. 1 to 4 had been completed but some areas of Union Council 8 including Mir Colony, Yasin Ghauri Goth, Rahim Nagar, and Rafsar Town would also get the water.

He said that Phase 1 of the Mirpurkhas city-wide drainage project had been completed while the development work of the second phase had also been started. Lal said that opponents should work patiently and the journey of development and prosperity of entire Sindh especially Mirpurkhas would continue. The provincial minister said that work on more development projects for Mirpurkhas city would be started this year.

The provincial minister said that with the increase in the prices of petroleum products by more than Rs 11 per liter in the last one and a half months, the people were facing a storm of inflation. He further said that Niazi government did not launch any significant project in Sindh but only made false promises and accusations against the people while PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would continue to lead the struggle for protection of public interest. He also appealed to the people to fully implement the SOPs announced by the government to prevent spread of Coronavirus.
