MANSEHRA: The federal parliamentary secretary and Member National Assembly Salah Mohammad Khan has said work on the gravity flow water supply scheme would be launched this year as the Saudi Arabia government has approved Rs6 billion for this project.

“The feasibility and other necessary work for this mega water supply scheme has been completed and its execution is going to be started by this year,” he was speaking to media in Oghi on Monday.

The legislator said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government was sincerely working for the uplift of the people settled anywhere in the province.“Some court litigation were hurdles in the smooth execution of this gravity flow water supply scheme but all such issues have been settled now and work on this project would be launched shortly,” he said.

The parliamentary secretary said that until the completion of mega gravity flow water supply scheme, work on another water supply scheme was underway which could ensure uninterrupted supply of water to people settled in the city and its suburbs 24/7.

He said that a mega tank of around 400,000 gallons capacity was being built at a hilltop near the New Circuit House from where the water would be supplied to the city and its suburbs.

It may be mentioned here that the people from different segments of society including lawyers, ulema and traders have launched a protest to demand potable water for the city and its suburbs. They took to the streets before the Eidul Azha to highlight their demand.
