Growers of Mirpur Sakro, Ghorabari, Keti Bunder Ghulamullah, and other areas of district Thatta staged a long march to register their protest against the lingering water shortage that has turned their agricultural lands baren.

Carrying play cards and banners in their hands local growers and members of civil society raised slogans against the irrigation department and those responsible for the artificial water shortage.

The growers complained that they were not getting water for the last four months to irrigate their agricultural land owing to the fact they were unable to cultivate paddy on time.
