Event Date: 2018-12-17

Senate Standing Committee on Water Resources has expressed serious displeasure on absence of Minister Water Resources, Chairman WAPDA and senior relevant officiers from the meeting. The meeting of the Senate Standing Committee on Water Resources was adjourned due to their absence. Chairman Committee Senator Shamim Afridi and members Senators Gianchand, Mir Muhammad Yousaf Badini, Qurat ul Ain Marri, Sana Jamali, and Joint Secretary Water Resources were present in the meeting. The Committee members expressed dissatisfaction over this behaviour and noted that the issue of water which is on high priority  these days on all forums is being neglected by the government by showing this non-serious attitude towards Parliamentary Committee sitting to discuss the matter. The Committee fixed the next meeting for 20 December and decided to take the matter up with Chairman Senate if same problem is encountered then.
