Pakistan Peoples Party legislators lashed out at Punjab over the issue of stealing waters of Sindh.
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MPA Khairunisa Mughal moved a resolution and government took the opposition parties’ consensus to debate on the issue for two hours in the house.
“The sea water has washed away as many as 90 villages [along the coastal belt of Sindh],” said Mughal. She suggested the government build a coastal highway from Karachi to Badin to protect settlements from sea intrusion.
“We are quite conscious of the difficulties being faced by the people of Sindh, especially in lower parts, and will not let Punjab further exploit water accords,” said PPP minister Syed Sardar Shah.
“Sindh is not orphaned land. We will resist if Punjab did not revisit its policies on the water issue .”
