Devastated by the floods, Pakistan had to break the embankment on the fresh water lake, leaving one lakh people homeless
Islamabad, September 6 (SO News/Agency) Floods have wreaked havoc in Pakistan. So far more than 1300 people have lost their lives and lakhs of people are homeless. Some countries have also come forward to help Pakistan, but on the ground level, Pakistan’s condition does not seem to be improving. The sufferings for people are increasing instead of decreasing. Considering the dangerous flood situation, Pakistan has broken the embankment built on ‘Manchar Lake’. This lake is the largest lake in the country which is also known as fresh water lake. The lake was filled with water so much that its bank was in danger of bursting. In such a situation, there was a fear of great destruction.
It is reported that the water level of the lake had crossed the danger mark due to which five million people of southern Sindh were in danger. Due to the breaching of the lake, its water spilled into the residential areas and around one lakh people were forced to relocate. Arrangements have been made for the evacuees to stay in camps. According to the Minister of Irrigation, the danger created by the damming of the lake has been removed in the densely populated areas.
Sindh Regional Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon told news agency AFP that engineers had to cut a drain in Manchar Lake to drain the water. This threatened the cities of Sehwan and Bhan Saeedabad. Officials said that such a flood had never occurred in the history of the country. Floodwaters have been diverted, but the danger remains. Thousands of people are still to be evacuated from small settlements. Apart from this, the officers also say that the government of Pakistan will have to spend about 80 thousand crore rupees to get out of this disaster. After the end of monsoon, if winter will knock, then providing houses to the homeless people is also a challenge.
