DERA GHAZI KHAN: Though the elite, elected representatives and far-flung areas in the district have an easy access to water, a village in the tribal belt is still without drinking water.
Thikrey Shumali Village located in Mubarik Union Council has no water supply scheme from the tehsil as well as district administration, while the performance of the Public Health Engineering Department is no more visible in the remote area.
It is a small village in the vast Suleman Ranges where the Buzdar tribe is settled with their chief Sardar Fateh Muhammad Khan Buzdar who have remained in the treasury benches in the Punjab Assembly for several terms.
Though this time he did not contest the elections and fielded his son Sardar Muhammad Usman Khan Buzdar who unfortunately could not win, but they are still preferred by the government against the elected MPA because of their affiliation with the PML-N.
Tribesmen, including Muhammad Ramzan, Sawan Khan, Ghulam Hussain, Allah Bakhash, Pir Muhammad, Allah Ditta, Ghulam Abbas, Nazar Muhammad, Jameel Ahmed and Mushtaq Ahmed, say that they did not have access to neat and clean drinking water and they depend on the pond that filled with rains. “Both humans as well as livestock quench their thirst from that pond.
