Karachi residents take to the streets over 10-month water shortage

May 29, 2019
Demonstration staged at ICI Chowk

Residents of Karachi's Lyari and nearby areas staged a protest at ICI Chowk on Wednesday against a prolonged water shortage.

They say they haven’t had access to water for the past 10 months.

The protesters blocked the roads, which resulted in a traffic jam at the ICI Bridge, also affecting traffic in other areas of the city.

After negotiations with the police, the protesters dispersed peacefully.

    This is so true. We have never faced water shortage in our but now we hardly get any water. We are now using under ground because tankers were expensive but under ground water is not fresh and we have to use due to low supply of water
