    Water to the population for domstic use and drinking purposes. The city administrators have realised the dream project for areas long without running water.

    Areas in Orangi specially had been symbolized with government apathy, and people often labelled it as a ‘political move’ to keep the area deprived of civic amenities. Not to mention that only beneficiey to this were the mafia for their anti social activities.

    With more financial leverages available to CDGK, the water oozing out of the long dead water mains, will go a long way in restoring the people confidence in their system. Those of us, who are a victim of this water shortages (from Karachi to Islamabad) can empathize with those who are receiving water through KIII.

    Good work KWSB for this supply. Deer ayed, dorast ayed!
