Protest against drinking water scarcity

 Residents of Booni on Saturday morning took out a protest demonstration against the sub-divisional authorities of Public Health and TMA Mastuj whose negligence, they held, was the only reason for the mysterious scarcity of drinking water in the region. The protesters, led by Mr. Sardar Hussain, warned of surrounding the Public Health and TMA offices if water supply pipe-line was not repaired within three days. Addressing the people who gathered at Booni Chowk, speakers strongly condemned the deaf-eared attitude of the responsible officials and contractors of the pipe-line project for corruption and misuse of the huge fund of Rs.12 million released for the project by the ex-MPA Molana Jahangir (the late).
Mr. Sardar Hussain, amid chimes and enthusiastic slogans, gave a deadline of three days to the concerned departments to take immediate necessary measures to solve the worsening problem. He said 'We will wait till July 27; and if they fail to launch work on repairing the pipe-line then we will push them out of their offices and lie there until they launch repairing-work.The protestors dispersed with strong notice to the authorities to re-gather shortly again. --(report by Zahoor ul Haq, Booni , 27 July 10)
