Commissioner Multan Division Javed Akhtar Mahmood ordered indiscriminate strict action on theft of irrigation water. The farmers at tale end of canals often remained deprived of adequate water for their agriculture fields. He expressed these remarks while chairing a meeting, attended by Irrigation Department officials, here on Monday.
He instructed officials to keep monitoring water theft points regularly so that water theft should be discouraged. The action against water thieves would surely help thousands of farmers as water would be available for their fields. Similarly, it will also enhance agricultural productivity.—APP
