Water pilferation in slum area

Islamabad—Amidst worst water pilferation in surrounding slum settlements of the Quaid-e-Azam University, CDA and Varsity administration has turned deaf ears towards miseries of the people.The supporting staff of the CDA’s directorate of water supply making money by allowing an illegal water connection from 48 inches diameter supply line. It is pertinent to note that according to rules of the CDA no one was allowed to establish a connection from the same line because it provides water to important buildings including Prime Minister house President house and parliament etc.

The main reason behind this theft is that CDA never stopped water supply through this line and currently all other supply lines (i.e 18 inches diameter, 36 inches diameter) have no water since long.

The slum settlers had no other solution except bribing the officials of the CDA for water in the hot summer. If some one count those houses that got water connections illegally, their number would be in thousands, Online has learnt.—Online
