RAWALPINDI  Supply of contaminated water to the residents of Sharifabad and Satellite Town is causing epidemics in the area. Water being supplied to us for last few weeks is extremely adulterated and harmful for health, said residents of the area.  “We have protested and lodged complaints in umpteen time against supply of filthy water but the Wasa is keeping a criminal silence over the issue, said Ali Ahmad, a teacher.

We all including women, men and children are forced to drink adulterated water as no one from the concerned department is paying heed to this problem, said Gulzar Ahmad, a resident.

One or two members of every family are suffering from abdominal diseases due to use of this water and every day several persons are taken to hospital in critical condition, said Haji Ahmad, a lecturer. Residents demanded supply of clean drinking water otherwise they will be forced to hold protest rally outside Wasa office.
