Special Assistant Punjab Chief Minister Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Friday said that politicians are talking against the facts on water distribution in the provinces and the fact is that the Sindh government is patronizing feudal lords who are stealing water.

“Punjab wants IRSA to play an active role and use modern technology including telemetry so that there is no dispute over water distribution.”

She said that on the territory of Punjab, water enters Sindh by travelling 2,600 square miles from Head Marla to Taunsa and this process wastes only 6% of water.

She said that water flows in an area of 600 square miles in Sindh while 39% of water is wasted in Sindh which is actually stolen by the fudals of Sindh and they have the patronage of Sindh provincial government.

She was addressing a press conference regarding ‘Service at Your Doorstep’ programme of Punjab. MD RWMC Owais Manzoor Tarar and Assistant Commissioner City Waqas Sikandari were also present on the occasion.

In response to a question, she said that Pindi is heart and oxygen saturation is at full level and all the arteries are fully open and active. Dr Firdous said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was leading on every issue and the country was now moving towards economic stability and development.

Replying to a question on Rawalpindi Ring Road, she was of the view that Prime Minister Imran Khan would not allow anyone to rob the people of their rights and would take action against them if necessary.

She said that the PTI government would be held equally accountable and no discrimination would be made in this matter whereas earlier the royal family used to distribute monkeys

. About PDM, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the power dream of fake princess will not come true and now the real competition is between N and Sheen League, and now her uncle is centre of all energies of the fake princess because PDM is over now.

Now the introduction of tourism has started for which cleanliness is essential.
