Karak needs govt attention

Karak is an important district of the KPK, producing billion of rupees revenue from its oil and gas fields located at different places across the district. B.D Shah is the hub of these precious natural resources. But, unfortunately, it has been the most under-developed part of the district.

It has neither medical nor educational facilities. The lonely Tehsil Headquarters Hospital always gives a deserted look. The inhabitants of the whole Tehsil are solely dependent on a single private clinic run by a doctor known for good behavior and treatment. Besides, there is no such educational institution imparting quality education. Resultantly, the people of the area lag behind in the race of progress and development.

The masses have no road facility--the one existing is in a shambles. A large portion of the road has been swept away by rains, hardly to be used for vehicles to ply on it. This road from B.D Shah Tehsil headquarters to district headquarters, Karak is extremely dangerous and serves as death's trap for those who use it. B.D Shah has always been neglected by the elected representatives in the past. Now, when the PTI Government is in power, it is expected that it will give special attention to this area to bring it at par with other developed areas of the KPK. Hopefully, the initiative will be taken from the reconstruction of Karak B.D Shah Road and hospital.

Karak people need drinking water

Karak is the abode of the Khattak tribe, rich in natural resources as well as fertile in terms of capabilities. But these unfortunate grandsons of great Khushal Baba are still thirsty in this globalized world. The masses, each and every time, come forward with the sole demand of drinking water, whenever they go for election.

Karak is naturally located in such an area which is mostly dry, barren and scarce in water resources as there is no river over here. The fertile land has little productivity for want of water. But irony of fate is that even, drinking water is hardly available at most of the places and the women folk still have to carry water on their heads or on the back of donkeys. The government has constructed several small dams at different sites across the district, but of no avail. Its living example is the most trumpeted 'Zabi dame' which does not serve the purpose it meant to serve. The hapless masses are still demanding just for water to be arranged for them. But the past successive governments have done nothing in real sense for the solution of the problem.

Now, the PTI Government is in corridor of power, and it knows how to resolve this long standing problem of the people of Karak, as the Chief Minister was once quoted by media as saying that the problem would be solved by arranging canal from the Indus river for Karak which, if a bit exaggerated, is flowing at a stone throw in the South of the district. Hopefully, we will see a canal system to be installed within the area in the years to come which will quench the insatiable thirst of the thirsty inhabitants of this unfortunate district of the KPK.
