June 14, 2017 The port city has a long history of water crisis.
Gwadar, Balochistan’s winter capital and the city of countless promises, has yet to give its residents a sufficient supply of water.
The port city is suppling two million gallons of water every four days, against a daily requirement of 3.
5 million gallons, official data suggests.
The citizens, meanwhile, decry the utter failure of authorities to come up with a viable solution to the problem.
There are always tall claims about developing Gwadar city, but in truth we are deprived of basic necessities.
The government is doing nothing except making false claims.
Gwadar has been suffering from an acute water shortage for the past decade, but no concrete steps have been taken to overcome this problem.
The water level in the dam is decreasing because of silt accumulation.
The previous government planned to install a water desalination plant in Pasni and Jiwani.
