Girl students stage protest against shortage of drinking water in School

THATTA: Around 800 Students of Government Girls School Makli Thatta converged outside the District Commissioner’s office here on Monday to protest against the persistent shortage of drinking water in the School that has somehow left an adverse effect on the educational activities at the School.

The girl students and teachers were also joined by members of civil society and people from different walks of life who deplored “Sheer reluctance” of district administration that had failed to provide such a basic facility to one of the major teaching institutes of the city.

Miss Yasmeen Unar Head Mistress of the neglected school told local reporters that there had not been any facility of drinking water at their school for the past 8 month adding that she had written letters to apprise concerned officers of the pathetic state of affairs but none of them had neither visited the school nor taken any notice of the pitiable situation. “It becomes increasingly hard for me to manage the things without water in this sweltering heat”; she lamented.

Iqbal Jakhro, a member of civil society, said that this day would be written in the history of Sindh when around 800 girls walked on the roads of Thatta to demand drinking water for them but their plea landed on the deaf ears of the concerned quarters.

They demanded the District Commissioner for provision of clean water for their School.
