Tharparkar- Dearth does not give up to startle life in Thar as another child fell prey to it in Chacharu mounting the death toll to 97 today.
Another child was sent to the hospital in Umer Kot in a critical condition. Some 35 children are ailing from malnutrition. Earlier, it was reported that administration’s negligence had increased the problems of the residents. Chief Minister (CM) Sindh Qaim Ali Shah said that children used to die earlier too but nobody took notice of the deaths at that time.
The victims in many areas are still looking for wheat that is sent as aid. The issue of potable water still exists even after a grant of two crores for a population of 15,000 people in Chahchro. Hundreds of wells have dried up and the people do not have access to potable water. CM Shah said that the Sindh government is giving out free wheat for the affectees.
