Water scarcity in capital to worsen in summer; CDA has no solid plan

By Mudassar Iqbal

ISLAMABAD, May 1 (APP): As the residents are already worried about
irregular supply of water in the federal capital, the situation is going to get worse in days to come with hot summer days approaching swiftly.

The issue is a decade old now but unfortunately the Capital Development Authority (CDA) could not come up with a solid plan and only solution to the issue for the authority lies in supplying water through tankers, a remedy always remained ineffective and controversial among citizens.

There is no shortage of water anywhere in Islamabad and our tankers are supplying water day, night to the residents. We are doing everything in our capacity to alleviate the shortage, said Director General Water Management CDA Ali Murad when asked about the situation in different sectors.
