QUETTA: Balochistan WASA has stopped supplying pure drinking water to the residents of Quetta city without any cogent reasons and residents of Quetta had been placed at the mercy of tankers mafia.

 

These views were expressed by Muhammad Hussain, ex-Councillor, Quetta Metropolitan Corporation and others while addressing a protest demonstration held outside Quetta Press Club here on Friday against the authorities of Balochistan WASA.

 

Speakers said that the authorities of Balochistan-WASA were not paying heed to address the genuine demand of the residents of Quetta. They said that it was not known as to why the supply of water to the dwellers of Quetta had been stopped from Marriabad Water Tubewell.

 

They called on authorities to ensure supplying pure drinking water to the residents of Quetta city. Chanting slogans against the authorities of B-WASA and in support of their demands, protesters dispersed peacefully.
