Farmers seek water

Post Source: Dawn Newspaper – Monday 26 Jul, 2010


QUETTA: Farmers from Gandakha tehsil of Jaffarabad district have criticised the authorities concerned for what they described as unfair distribution of irrigation water in the tail-end area of the Khirthar canal.

Addressing a press conference on Sunday, farmers’ representatives Hasan Din Jamali, Mohammad Qasim Sarparah, Syed Liaquat Shah and Mohammad Bakhsh Methazai said that farmers could not cultivate their thousands of acres of lands because of non-availability of water.

They said tail-end areas were without water because of its unfair distribution, adding that their Rabi crops had also been destroyed for want of water.—Staff Correspondent
