Water supply for cattle marketSeptember 14, 2014
Karachi: “Around 150 water tankers of 2000 gallons each are being provided daily to merchants free of cost for their animals’ consumption to ensure the animals remain safe from diseases that arise from water shortage,” said Rana Imran, Administrator of Maweshi Mandi, Sohrab Goth.
He said that despite the increasing number of sacrificial animals in mandi, water supply is more than the mandi demand. Special arrangements have been made by the Cantonment Board Malir to resolve the water shortage issue and unlimited drinking water for animals is being provided free of cost now.
Meanwhile, Cantonment Board Malir has distributed water drums to cattle merchants for the storage of free water on special instructions of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Cantonment Board Malir Mohammad Farooque.
Representatives of Cantonment Board Malir said that with enough water and storage options available, it is now the responsibility of the cattle merchant to keep their animals healthy by giving them sufficient drinking water and not utilize the free water for other purposes.
Cattle merchants thanked the administration and CEO Mohammad Farooque’s for their efforts for uninterrupted water supply and facilitation in other matters also and vowed to help the management in making the event a success.
