QUETTA: Balochistan’s Min­­i­ster for Public Health and Eng­i­neering Noor Mohammad Dummar on Sunday inaugurated a dam and Karez in the old Sanjavi area.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Dummar said that Balochistan had been facing an acute shortage of water since long. He said the people of the province were being forced to resort to unregulated extraction of groundwater through tube wells.

He said since Balochistan was the most neglected province of the country, it had been adversely hit by water shortage since 2010. “According to some estimates, the province will face chronic water shortages in coming years if the incumbent provincial government continues to ignore the issue."
