Unhygienic water in bottles

May 10, 2013

I was travelling by bus to Gujranwala from Lahore last week. A vendor entered the bus to sell juices, potato chips and mineral water. I bought a bottle of mineral water.

However, when I drank it, it did not taste good. Becoming suspicious, I kept the bottle with me with the remaining water.

Later, when I had it examined in a reputable lab, it was learnt that the water was unhygienic as it contained bacteria.

Vendors must not be allowed to play with the lives of people. Or maybe they are being made into scapegoats by more powerful people who are supplying them with unhygienic water in bottles. I would like to request the government of Punjab to take stern action against these people by putting an end to this dangerous practice once and for all.
