KARACHI: Faisal Moiz Khan, President, North Karachi Association of Trade & Industry (NKATI), has expressed deep concern over non-supply of water to the industries, requested authorities to take notice of the issue immediately.

In a statement, Faisal Moiz Khan has urged Governor and Chief Minister Sindh to issue directives to MD Water Board for supplying water as per consumption of the industries. “So that production activities can continue without any hindrance,” he added.

“Production activities are stalled due to non-availability of water to factories. This can affect both the production of goods and the timely delivery of foreign orders”, he feared.

NKATI Chief also protested against the attitude of the MD Water Board, and said that when the MD Water Board was contacted, he did not give any positive response to the industrial community. “On the contrary, his attitude was highly reprehensible,” he added.

He requested provincial leadership to issue directives to MD Water Board to adopt a better attitude towards the industrial community and ensure water supply as per the demand while resolving issues on priority basis. “Otherwise, production activities will be severely affected, which will have a negative impact on the country’s overall exports,” he concluded.
