I want to draw the attention of the concerned authorities through your newspaper to the following problem. With the advent of summer it has becoming too hard to cope without cold drinking water. The students of the University of Karachi are suffering because they have to move about all day without any drinking water. There are no more than half a dozen water coolers, in the arts department and they are mostly out of order. Students have to buy cold water from the canteens putting a heavy load on their limited pocket. It is shameful that students have little access to clean, safe and free drinking water. I request the concerned authorities to allocate funds to the University of Karachi so that it can solve the water crises before there are any reported cases of dehydration.


Karachi, May 5.
