LARKANA: Farmers and peasants of various villages of Larkana district reached Irrigation Department Complex on Monday and held a protest demonstration in its corridor against acute water shortage. They said that they complained to the engineers at the irrigation department several times for releasing water into the respective irrigation drains but they have been denied water so far as they are selling water to influential landlords. They said that if water is not released quickly, their lands will become barren.
