MITHI- Three more precious lives lost in drought-hit Tharparkar, due to malnutrition today.

The three children who died were admitted to Civil Hospital Mithi. The death toll in last two months in desert region of Sindh, has climbed to 174.

The change in weather pattern with winter season setting in, has also added to the miseries of Tharparkar citizens. Local authorities fear further rise in deaths, if immediate steps are not taken to protect the people.

The deaths have prompted criticism for the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), which governs in the southern province of Sindh where part of the desert is located.
