Make hay when the sun shines
On the other hand, the locals have started to supply the dead fish in the market fuelling fears of spread of diseases. The outbreak of skin diseases is being feared in the area due to the supply of dead fish in the market.
Meanwhile, the officials have informed high-ups about the losses being caused by the untreated water.
The local administration and the Punjab Food Authority (PFA) have not yet been mobilized to stop the supply and sale of dead fish.
India has been releasing untreated and floodwaters into Pakistani rivers frequently.
On July 29, 2019, dozens of villages, including Qazi Paharang, Makhanpur, Daulatpur, Sikandarpur, Dharewal, Kotli Khawaja, Kaluwali Syedan, Roopo Wali, Wahga, Kaluwali Khurd, Rasoolpur and Bhikki were submerged after India had released floodwater in Nullah Dek. Standing crops on hundreds of acres were also destroyed.
